|Title||Hops farm at Snoqualmie, with Mount Si in the distance, ca. 1891 |
|Photographer||Warner, Arthur Churchill, 1864-1943 |
|Date||ca. 1891 |
|Notes||Three Puget Sound partners formed the Hop Growers Association in 1882. They purchased land from Jeremiah Borst in the Meadowbrook area, and soon expanded to over 1500 acres, about 900 of them in hops. The Snoqualmie Hop Farm was billed as "The largest Hop Ranch In the World, " and was head-quartered at Meadowbrook. Hop growing flourished for about a dozen years, and then world market conditions and aphid attacks brought an abrupt decline into the late 1890's.|
