Snoqualmie Valley

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Snoqualmie Point Park is part of the Snoqualmie Valley.

The Snoqualmie Valley is an agricultural and forestry region along the Snoqualmie River in western Washington state . The valley extends from the confluence of the three source rivers (English "forks") at North Bend to the confluence of the Snoqualmie River in the Skykomish River . This forms the Snohomish River near Monroe . The flow route also includes the Snoqualmie Falls . Towns in the valley are North Bend, Snoqualmie , Preston , Fall City , Carnation and Duvall . The valley is home to the Skykomish / Skai-whamish , a band of the Snoqualmie.

At the end of the 19th century, hops were the main crop in the region.

The valley is the ancestral home of the Snoqualmie . The name Snoqualmie comes from the indigenous word for the "creator moon" and is rooted in the creation myth of Snoqualmie.


Although there are different towns in the Snoqualmie Valley, Snoqualmie and North Bend are the main ones. The cities are usually indistinguishable from one another. They are usually named in terms of their districts and neighborhoods.


The east side of the Snoqualmie Valley is served by Washington State Route 203 , which runs from Fall City to Monroe.
