King County Landmarks: Issaquah Sportsmen's Clubhouse (1937), Issaquah
Address: 23600 SE Evans Street, Issaquah. Since its construction in 1937, the Issaquah Sportsmen's Clubhouse has housed the club. The Issaquah Sportsmen's Club was founded in 1920 as a recreation, social, and habitat conservation association. The City of Issaquah built the clubhouse with the support of the Works Progress Administration (WPA). To increase employment during the Great Depression, the WPA provided Federal funds to hire workers for local projects. The city provided equipment and materials. The use of inexpensive locally-available lumber is reflected in the vertical half-log construction and in the use of peeled logs to support the eaves and porch roof, and to trim window and door openings. A prominent gable roofed porch dominates the facade, and solid wooden shutters protect the windows when the building is not occupied.
