Saturday 6th Oct 2018
10am – 4pm
Put on by Historic Wallingford
The Wallingford neighborhood is built on a patchwork of early-day plats through which streetcar lines developed in the early 20th century. Today, the neighborhood is a rich tapestry of residential architecture that reflects Seattle’s heyday of development, and it remains one of the city’s best collections of Craftsman bungalows. Historic Wallingford will be celebrating the neighborhood on October 6th with the first annual Wallingford Historic Homes Fair.
Events include seminars on the styles of vintage residential architecture, what makes them unique and how to update them respectfully; a showing of the film: “Bungalow Heaven, preservation of a neighborhood” about citizen efforts to honor a neighborhood in Pasadena, California; a discussion panel on historic preservation districts and landmarks; a virtual walk through Wallingford with historian Tom Veith; and hands-on instruction on researching the history of your home anywhere in Seattle.
