You have to visit this part of Snoqualmie, or you'll miss the most charming location in WA state! The town has a wealth of food, art, coffee, antiques and history. Never mind the amazing tree stump on display!

Crossed the street after eating lunch and took a trip into the past. If your a RR buff it is worth a short visit. Unfortunately the rail cars were not open for entry. Public facilities at the depot were clean and well maintained.
