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 interpretative signs were installed in the existing kiosks along the south side of First Street in 2020!
The wayfinding system of three-pole kiosks was installed maybe twenty years ago and over time most were vandalized and no longer used in an official way.

The three signs shown above have been ordered and will be installed as indicated on the map. A special thanks to copyeditor Melanie Kreiger, and graphic designer David Chrisman for their careful reviews — it takes a village.
