Historic Seattle announces awards, ceremony
Living in one of Seattle’s oldest neighborhoods makes me particularly appreciative of historical preservation efforts, but the work that local groups do to maintain our city’s historic sites benefits all of us. To that end,Historic Seattle, the local non-profit dedicated to architectural preservation in the city, has named seven winners for their second annual Preservations Awards.
Awards celebrate excellence in preserving and protecting built heritage.
This year’s winners are:
Furuya and Corgiat Buildings and Joshua Green Building for Best Rehabilitation
William Tell Building for Preserving Neighborhood Character.
Women’s University Club for Exemplary Stewardship
Downtown Historic Resources Survey and Inventory for Excellence in Preservation Planning
Paramount Theatre Sign and 5th Avenue Theatre Sign for Illuminating History
All of the winners will be honored at a ceremony on May 11 (May is National Historic Preservation Month) at Women’s University Club, 1105 Sixth Avenue (at Spring Street). The event includes appetizers, desserts, wine and beer; doors open at 5:30 pm and the program begins at 6:30. Tickets are $50 for Historic Seattle members, $60 for the general public and a mere $25 for students. Register in advance at Historic Seattle or by phone at 206.622.6952.
