During the next few weeks, we’ll explore the Barlow Farm that was located near the southern tip of Lake Sammamish many years ago. This photo, looking north, shows the Barlow house between 1910 and 1920. Some interesting points in the photo are the old wagon trail to Factoria in the foreground at the far right (now the path of Interstate 90 ), the stand of trees on the point in the background (now the South Cove neighborhood), and the children’s swing in the front yard of the house.)
