Historic District is Official!

The National Park Service has announced that the Wallingford-Meridian Streetcar Historic District is officially listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Congratulations Wallingford!

The designation will be a catalyst for community pride and engagement, and we look forward to celebrating Wallingford in 2023. 

Historic Wallingford wishes to thank consultant Northwest Vernacular, our many volunteers who contributed more than 2,000 hours doing street review and research, and our supporters who made this nomination possible.

The nomination is posted to our website.

Stories Uncovered by Historic District Research

Historic Wallingford has a team of volunteers combing through old newspapers, census records, and Polk directories to document the people and places of Wallingford. The research is revealing a wonderful tapestry of stories that are reflected in the dwellings, shops, parks, and streetscapes of today’s neighborhood.
