What Will The Garden House Be?

Built in 1886, The Garden House is also known as the Turner-Koepf House.

It served the Jefferson Park Ladies’ Improvement Club and Washington State Federation of Garden Clubs for decades before turning to private ownership in 2018.

Historic Seattle acquired the property in December 2021 & is now engaging the Beacon Hill community to envision the future of the Garden House.

YOU Tell Us!

For decades, the Garden House served as a hub for community activities. As part of its mission to save meaningful places that foster lively communities, Historic Seattle will restore this use and will make the property even more accessible to community.

In partnership with Rolluda Architects and RISE LWP (Historic Seattle’s diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility consultant), we will engage the Beacon Hill community in a series of events to envision the future use of the property.

At the conclusion of these meetings, Historic Seattle aims to identify a use(s) and interested community-focused tenant(s) to execute a lease(s) to operate the Garden House.

Please join us & share your vision for the historic Garden House’s future!
