About 95% of [Swing Rock] has been completely removed and used for gravel over the past 50 or so years. The remaining portion is now only property managed by the Meadowbrook Farm Preservation Association and the property is owned by the City of Snoqualmie. We have taken a few steps to protect the Swing from further destruction. The first step has been to ensure the remaining rock is protected. Both the Cities of North Bend and Snoqualmie have been supportive of this and even worked with us on paying for a property line survey to be conducted a few years ago. This gave everyone a clear picture of what was left for us to protect. It was determined that the mining company had already taken everything they could and all that remained was on the publicly owned property. King County has also expressed interest in include the Swing as a King County Landmark; a process that is currently pending while we finish some studies.
