Seattle’s Wallingford neighborhood is located on a hill overlooking the north shores of Lake Union. It is an early 20th century streetcar suburb, and its growth followed the arrival of the streetcar lines between 1905 and 1910. Hundreds of residences were built all over Wallingford in the early 1900s, and they reflect a range of architectural styles that were popular nationwide. Craftsman is the most common house style found in Wallingford.
The Washington Trust for Historic Preservation is leading the effort to draft a management plan for the Maritime Washington National Heritage Area. The plan outlines the path forward for this new program, which aims to celebrate, maintain, and share Washington’s maritime heritage.
