King County has 15 individually designated landmarks plus a designated landmark district on Vashon Island that represent the community’s ties to the water, its agricultural roots, and rural and vernacular town forms. Historic Seattle, in partnership with the King County Historic Preservation Program (KCHPP) and Vashon-Maury Island Historical Society, has developed this self-guided tour that will allow participants to travel at their own pace – by car, bike, or foot – and do as few or as many stops as they want. Some of the properties will have interiors open to view. Volunteers will be on hand at some of the stops along the route to share the property’s history and architecture. Stops include the Roasterie (Minglemint), Fuller Store, Portage Store, Marjesira Inn, Colvos Store, the Thomas and Etta McNair House, Smith-Baldwin House, Hilmar and Selma Steen House, Vashon Hardware Store (restaurant), and Vashon Odd Fellows Hall. Tour maps will be available for pick up at Vashon-Maury Island Heritage Museum, 10105 Bank Road. Historic overview presentations will be made throughout the day at scheduled times.
