Farm is 460 acres of scenic and historic public open space on the Snoqualmie Valley floor, located
within the cities of Snoqualmie and North Bend. By oral tradition the birthplace of the Snoqualmie
Tribe, "Hyas Kloshe Ilahee" (the Great Good Land) was maintained for thousands of years by the Snoqualmies
as a hunting and food gathering prairie. Early white settlers homesteaded the prairie for farms, and these
were consolidated during the late 1800's to form the world's largest hop ranch. Subsequent farmers raised
crops, dairy herds, greenchop and hay.

The land was acquired as jointly owned public open space by Snoqualmie and North Bend in 1996
for historic and cultural interpretation, wildlife habitat, ongoing agriculture, and public recreation.
Today, much of Meadowbrook Farm remains open meadow and wetland forest, as it has been for centuries.
The two cities established the Meadowbrook Farm Preservation Association, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit
organization, to manage the property, and implement its master site plan. Completion of a new
Interpretive Center building on-site provides an all-weather focal point for public enjoyment and use
of the farm.
Come walk across the meadows, explore the forests, enjoy a class, plan your special event, or simply admire the views of this beautiful place!
