Lewis Creek Park Visitor Center (5808 Lakemont Blvd SE, Bellevue 98006)
Join Eastside Heritage Center for a historical presentation led by volunteer Steve Williams on the history of coal mining on Cougar Mountain. This program focuses on 100 years of local coal mining, and how coal was exported from this region to San Francisco in the late 1800s, turning Seattle into a dominant seaport. In 1888, there were 20 mules and 200 men employed here for coal mining. Discover what is underneath a mountain that is older than Mt. Rainier.
Presented in partnership with Bellevue Parks & Community Services and the Issaquah Alps Trail Club.
A warm thank you to all those who supported the 9th Annual Eastside Heritage Center Benefit Dinner on March 2, 2016 at the Meydenbauer Center. Your generosity raised over $105,000 towards the stewardship of Eastside history.
