Wednesday, September 25, 7 pm, Council Chambers, City Hall, 17500 Midvale Ave N
What famous company founders have made their homes in Shoreline? How old is the oldest building in Shoreline? What events in the nation’s history have most profoundly shaped the city we know and love today? These are the stories of place as told by buildings. Historic buildings give a city identity and character. What old buildings and places tell Shoreline’s history?
Documenting the old and interesting historic places in a city is a first step towards protecting them. The City of Shoreline maintains a list of historic properties to encourage stewardship of historic sites and structures, to identify properties that might merit landmark designation, and to help us all understand Shoreline’s history through commemoration and interpretation.
Join us on Wednesday, Sept. 25, as we kick off the update of Shoreline’s Historic Resources Inventory. We will be hosting this open house in the Shoreline City Hall Council Chambers from 7:00pm to 9:00pm. Come tell us about your favorite old buildings, houses, or community landmarks. Learn about Shoreline’s hidden past and how we will be using a grant from 4Culture to find these historic treasures.
