CANCELED – Due to governmental mandates and health/safety concerns about COVID-19, Historic Seattle has canceled this program.
Dig into Historic Seattle’s rehabilitation of Fall City’s Ronnei-Raum House in this multidimensional program. Visit the historic 1895 masonic hall for an overview of the history of Fall City and the Ronnei-Raum House, a recently designated King County landmark. Once the home of the caretaker for the neighboring masonic hall, you’ll get to visit the house and discover Historic Seattle’s approach for the sensitive remodel about to get underway.
Archaeologists working on the site will explain their work, and guide you in doing some archaeological digging of your own. All ages are welcome at this special opportunity to get your hands dirty and learn about history and preservation (kids welcome)! Space is limited for this free event, so register today.
More about the Ronnei-Raum House & Historic Seattle’s work with it:
The Ronnei-Raum House is the first Preservation Action Fund project undertaken by Historic Seattle. The Preservation Action Fund (PAF) is a unique and proactive revolving fund dedicated to purchasing, restoring, protecting, and reselling historic properties throughout King County. The fund is administered by the PAF Advisory Team: Historic Seattle, 4Culture, King County’s Historic Preservation Program, and the Washington Trust for Historic Preservation.
Historic Seattle is responsible for acquiring, landmarking, rehabilitating, and selling the property. When the project is completed and the property is sold, the sales proceeds return to the fund to acquire the next project.
The Ronnei-Raum House is among the oldest surviving residential structures in the King County community of Fall City. It was built at the heart of the original town plat, just a block from the banks of the Snoqualmie River and adjacent to Fall City Masonic Lodge #66.
Cost: Free! Advance registration is required.
SOLD OUT. If you’d like to be added to the waitlist for this program, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your phone number and requested number of tickets. Admission is not guaranteed.
