The story of the Early Snohomish Heritage Trail begins here.
Wendy Poischbeg as the city’s Economic Development, and Communications Manager at the time, was awarded a Historic Preservation grant from Snohomish County for nine interpretative signs, and I was commissioned to design and write the content.
Six signs were installed in the existing kiosks along the south side of First Street in 2020! The three remaining signs: one, two, and nine are shown here in the portrait format, but will be installed in the landscape format, someday.
The wayfinding system of three-pole kiosks was installed in 2010, maybe, and twenty years later most were vandalized and no longer used in an official way.
A special thanks to copyeditor Melanie Kreiger, and graphic designer David Chrisman for their careful reviews — it takes a village.
