The original Tollgate Barn was constructed in 1924 and was used as milking barn until dairy farming was discontinued. In 1999 the barn collapsed after windstorm damage and only remnants of the foundation and concrete floor remained.


The replacement barn supports the Tollgate Farmstead Agricultural Program by providing space for agricultural products and hay bales, farm equipment and vehicles, cold storage for produce, and occasional community events such as hoedowns.


The Tollgate Farmhouse may have been constructed as a “toll house” near the river crossing on the Snoqualmie Pass Wagon Road, and later moved in 1909 to its present location. The historic farmhouse is an important reminder of the agricultural heritage of the valley.


The Farmhouse had been vacant and deteriorated from the weather over many decades, and the exterior was restored with new roofing, replacement windows, and siding repairs and repainting in the original colors. The interior of the Farmhouse was also renovated for community events as well as cooking and food preservation classes.
