Historic Seattle is excited to present a program series highlighting our 2022 Preservation Awards Winners. This series runs from March 29 to April 29 and includes virtual and in-person events. We look forward to learning more about these incredible preservation projects from the project teams!
Dr James W. Washington, Jr. & Mrs. Janie Rogella Washington Foundation | 2022 Community Advocacy Award
The Dr. James W. Washington, Jr. & Mrs. Janie Rogella Washington Foundation was established in 1997 by the couple to “preserve the art, writing, and lifetime works of Dr. James W. Washington, Jr., their home and gardens, and share their vision through the preservation, interpretation, and showing of his works and studio, and the family gardens and home. Also, to encourage others by providing a setting where they can grow beyond the book, spiritually and artistically, and to share their talents with a larger audience.” Over the years, the Washington Foundation has maintained and upgraded the house, studio, and gardens and presented activities and programs for the community.
We look forward to this in-person tour of the Washingtons’ home, including a look at the grounds and studio, by board President, Reverend Dr. LaVerne Hall.
Please note that the property is not ADA accessible.
