Journey Stories

At Eastside Heritage Center’s annual Bellevue Strawberry Festival in Crossroads Park, members of the community engage directly in the preservation and interpretation of Eastside history by sharing their “journey stories” with us. We hope you enjoy these “Birth Place” segments from 2011 and 2012, as introductions to the diversity of stories collected. These video oral history projects were made possible through the support of 4Culture, the City of Bellevue and Humanities Washington.

Journey Stories Segment One - . this is a 12-minute segment hosted on YouTube.

Downtown Bellevue Library

You may not know the name Dudley Carter, but you’ve likely seen his artwork around the Eastside. The creator of the Forest Deity, Bird Woman and Legends of the Moon (just to name a few), was King County’s first artist in residence in 1987, living in the Haida House in Redmond’s Slough House Park until his death in 1992. This exhibit includes carved models for some of Carter’s larger sculptures, as well as more information on this important Pacific Northwest artist.
