Founder of the Snoqualmie Valley Historical Museum, Ada Snyder Hill left a wonderful legacy to all who call this beautiful Valley home, when she wrote and generously gave to the Museum the copyright to her A History of the Snoqualmie Valley, published in 1970. In it the biographical sketches of “the early settlers” are of those who came here prior to 1880; the “later settlers” sketches tell of those who arrived between 1880 and Dec. 31, 1889. All are recognized as pioneers for two reasons. One, in her book’s Foreword Mrs. Hill wrote: “after the railroad was running it seemed that the real pioneer days were over.” Two, and most convincing, Dec. 31, 1889 is the end date set for those who may belong to the Washington State Pioneer Society.
