Our walkabout in North Creek began walking the length of the train since that is where we parked. We began at 9:00 A.M. and it was already hot that day. The history is contained in the illustration to the left and what a rich wonderful history North Creek has!
This is Leonard Wilson who was manning the register at the Braley and Noxon Hardware Store. What a friendly, knowledgeable man. We enjoyed our visit with him and already loved the North Creekers.
Two days later, my friend, Pat and I, went to Martha's Restaurant and enjoyed our lunch. It was very good and inexpensive.
The text to the left tells how the whole town cooperated in the making of the community center which also houses offices, historical items, and the theater where they conduct drama classes and plays.
Below is the community center, which was as beautiful inside as out. This is where we learned about the strong Irish influence of the people in North Creek and where we saw what the town board, and the people could accomplish by coming together in harmony on a desire to improve their community. The lady told us that the old community center burned down and so they began making phone calls asking for donations to build or buy a new one. One phone call resulted in the donor saying, "I will donate the money for it." With his generosity and the community working together, they built this beautiful structure.

Our trek through North Creek was so great, I want to go back and do it again! Thank you North Creekens for being so kind and friendly to us!
