As part of its Preservation Recognition Program, on Saturday, November 11, 2017, the Shoreline Historical Museum gave its 12th Annual Trillium Heritage Awards to three deserving contestants in North Seattle, Lake Forest Park and Shoreline.

All of the award winners have worked to keep the historical integrity of their buildings intact, giving their surrounding communities depth and meaning that might otherwise have been lost.

The award for North Seattle went to Catherine Walker, owner of a 1928 home constructed with the generous portions of an English country cottage estate. Clifford and Frances Schonacker built the house and a poultry barn, and planted an orchard. The Walkers purchased it in 1965 and restored it to its original glory.

Accepting the award for a historic building in Lake Forest Park were Harry and Baiki Khurana, owners of the 1916 craftsman bungalow at 18211 Ballinger Way NE. One the first homes in Lake Forest Park, it is known as “the Raymond House,” where the family lived until the 1980s - first, Edward and Annabelle Raymond, and then their son Ernie and wife Thelma.

The Trillium Heritage Award for the Shoreline area went to the Steed family for the “Hauan House” located at 19822 15th Ave NW. Built possibly a little earlier than 1901, this treasure was the residence of one of the earliest families to settle in Richmond Beach. The Steeds are also related to the John L. Johnsons, who were neighbors of the Hauans. Leslie Steed has lovingly kept the house in its original condition, both inside and out.

The Shoreline Historical Museum’s Trillium Heritage Awards raise awareness of the community’s roots, and encourages excellence in the maintenance and perpetuation of historic buildings in accordance with their original style. Congratulations to the 2017 winners.
