Gabriella Johnson, a new staff member of The Greater Kent Historical Society presented on How Electricity Came to Kent, Washington on January 15, 2019.
She presented on how electricity powered: transportation, companies, jobs, and entertainment in Kent, WA. Before electricity, work was done by hand, cities were dangerous, transportation was difficult and farming fueled the economy. Once electricity came to Kent: telephones were invented, electricity came into homes, railroads were made, and cows even listened to the radio!
Gabriella Johnson is a junior at Kent-Meridian High School in the International Baccalaureate Program. Her future plans include attending college and majoring in history.
Thank you, Gabriella, for all your hard work on this presentation!
