The Duvall Visitor Center (DVC) is at the center of downtown activities. The DVC is run by a coalition of Duvall groups who have the common goal of providing a warm, inviting gathering place for visitors and local residents where people can learn about Duvall’s history and thriving business community. The DVC is jointly operated by the City of Duvall, the Duvall Chamber of Commerce, the Duvall Civic Club, the Duvall Foundation for the Arts, and Cascade Community Theater. The building contains treasures of Duvall’s heritage dating from the early 1900s.
Today the DVC serves as a place for people visiting Duvall and the Snoqualmie Valley where they can obtain brochures and information on local businesses, points of interest, transportation routes, public trails, community events and more. The large top floor is frequently rented to community groups and citizens for many different activities, including scout meetings, theater performances, business meetings, dance rehearsals, fund-raisers, vendor events and school functions. Visitors are welcomed with light refreshments such as cookies and coffee sponsored by local businesses each month. Dedicated volunteers from the community staff the DVC year-round. We offer opportunities to rent the Visitor Center space.

|Year’s worth of functions planned for Duvall and city’s new Visitor and Centennial Center
DUVALL–They came, they saw, they remembered.
It was “Old Home Week” for Valley natives and long-time residents as they visited with old friends and admired historical photographs during the first two events held at the new Duvall Visitor and Centennial Center.
The first event was the Feb. 2 grand opening of the center where visitors could see the newly remodeled former library, check out local businesses and talk to historians. The second function, just a couple of days later, was local author Allen Miller’s historical presentation and judging from the size of the crowd that attended it appeared many recent arrivals are just as interested as the older folks in the history of the place they now call home, especially in this, the city’s centennial year.
Because the building was the home of the town library for decades, it took some sprucing up to make the transformation. Numerous volunteers spent countless hours cleaning, painting and laying carpet.
Owned by the city for the centennial year to the Duvall Chamber and Duvall Foundation for the Arts, the building is meant to be not only a community gathering place but also an event rental space and community group headquarters. The public is invited to stop by during business hours to relax, use the wi-fi and learn about the town’s history.
Groups can book an event by contacting the Duvall Chamber of Commerce at (425) 788-9182 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The center is spacious, but currently a bit spartan due to lack of furnishings and office supplies. There is an extensive “needs” list for those who wish to donate. For information, contact the Chamber or Duvall Foundation for the Arts ator email@example.com.
Taking part in the Feb. 2 ribbon-cutting ceremony of the new Duvall Visitor and Centennial Center are, from left, historical re-enactors Kris Wylie (Kate Dougherty), Michelle Tuck (Rose Norenberg), Duvall Foundation for the Arts President Kim Piira, Duvall Chamber of Commerce President Scott Thomas, Duvall Mayor Will Ibershof, Kimberly Engelkes (Duvall Historical Society) and Ron Tuck (portraying Lon Brown).
