Historic Seattle is excited to launch a new program series highlighting a handful of our 2020 and 2021 Preservation Awards Winners. This series runs from February 22 to March 12 and includes virtual and in-person events. We look forward to learning more about these incredible preservation projects from the project teams!
Save the Stone Cottage | 2021 Community Advocacy Award
In the early 1930s, Eva Falk and her mother Helen foraged thousands of stones from local shores and ‘hired’ unemployed Hooverville stonemasons to attach them to exterior wood walls in exchange for meals. Recently facing demolition, the Stone Cottage was being watched by preservation advocates affiliated with the Southwest Seattle Historical Society. The new owner/developer agreed to give the newly organized grassroots group Save the Stone Cottage, who worked tirelessly to relocate it to a temporary site in August 2021. Save the Stone Cottage also received a $3,000 Community Advocacy prize to fund their ongoing work to find a permanent, publicly accessible home for the building
Join us for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the Stone Cottage, on blocks, at its temporary site* in West Seattle and learn more about this ongoing preservation effort from a few leaders of the Save the Stone Cottage movement: John Bennett, Owner of Bennett Properties; Deb Barker, President of Morgan Community Association, and Mike Shaughnessy, Gadget-guy & Junkologist at Georgetown Junk.
Registration for this program is now closed. Please direct your questions to Taelore Rhoden (email@example.com).
