As part of its Preservation Recognition Program, on Saturday, November 9, 2019 the Shoreline Historical Museum gave its 14th Annual Trillium Heritage Awards to deserving nominees in North Seattle and Lake Forest Park. 

The award for North Seattle went to the Henry and Lucinda Denny home, built around 1900 at 8850 Wallingford Ave N in the Licton Springs neighborhood.

The award recipients are Jan Brucker and Dave Barber, who have restored the seven-bedroom house and landscape to its former glory. The home was also occupied for over 20 years by Logan and Dorothy Harter and their large family.

“Lovely” Logan Harter, as he was known, was a famous race car driver at the Aurora Speedway next to Playland, and all around the Pacific Northwest. Though the house was never moved, its address was, at some point, changed by a whole block!

Accepting the award for a historic building in Lake Forest Park was Lauri Lambert, owner of the Tryon-Proctor home at 3372 NE 180th.

The home was built in 1913, one of the famous “First Eight” homes to be built in Lake Forest Park.  Sisters Mary Tryon and Louise Proctor came to Seattle around 1910, and were convinced by Ole Hanson and his nephew Alexander Reid to build a beautiful home in exchange for a piece of property at a prominent corner. The craftsman bungalow may have been designed by W.C. Jackson, who was also the architect for Reid’s home. 

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. We are so pleased to honor these recipients, who have worked hard to keep the character of their homes intact.

The Shoreline Historical Museum is located at the corner of N 185th and Linden Ave N in Shoreline.
