Historical Redmond is in a Miniature Exhibit

Historical Redmond in Miniature Exhibit
In honor of City of Redmond’s Centennial celebration, the Redmond United Methodist Church will be hosting an Historical Redmond in Miniature Exhibit in its chapel which was built in 1906. The church has teamed up with the Emerald Heights Retirement Community to create a display depicting the original church building and other historic structures in Redmond. Jim Easley started the miniature project at Emerald Heights Retirement Community as part of a garden train display. One of the historical models is of the original Methodist Church Chapel. With help from the Redmond Historical Society and the City of Redmond, several other models have been included in this exhibit. They include the Leary Way railway station, the Marymoor windmill, and the first library.
The public is invited to view the display on Saturday, December 1, December 8, and December 15, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m., at 16540 NE 80 Street, Redmond. The Redmond United Methodist Church is the oldest faith community in Redmond, tracing its history back to the pioneer days of 1896. For more information, call 425-883-7553, or go to
