Seattle’s Wallingford is a neighborhood with a rich, interesting, and diverse history. Today, it has matured into a wonderful neighborhood with valued residential and commercial presences.
Through the activities of the Historic Wallingford organization, we wish to share our community’s history with residents of Seattle and beyond. The value of knowing our historic past and stories about those who shared our neighborhood in the past, will enhance the lives of people today and tomorrow. Elementary, middle, and high school students will benefit from a sense of identity through the identification of a shared past.
A principal purpose of Historic Wallingford is to raise awareness of the significant cultural values of Wallingford. By increasing the awareness of and interest in the historic character of Wallingford, our intention is to serve all people of Seattle, visitors to Wallingford, visitors to our website, and to those who live and work in Wallingford. We will bring forward the cultural value of the stories of the generations of people, historic homes, past and present commercial buildings, and institutions of Wallingford.
We want to create some excitement about this wonderful place called Wallingford!
