The 2023 Preservation Celebration

Historic Seattle’s Preservation Celebration benefits our mission to save meaningful places that foster lively communities. At the event, honorees are also recognized with awards for their achievements in historic preservation.

On Thursday, September  28,

we hosted our 15th Annual Preservation Celebration benefit at Washington Hall!

Featuring emcee Feliks Banel, we recognized our 2023 Preservation Award Winners and took a special look back at Historic Seattle’s 50 year history of

saving meaningful places to foster lively communities.
