Historic Wallingford is pleased to announce that its nomination of the Wallingford-Meridian Streetcar Historic District to the National Register of Historic Places is scheduled to be considered at a public hearing of the Washington State Advisory Council on Historic Preservation. (View the nomination at this link.)

The public hearing will take place in Olympia and online from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Friday, October 14, 2022. A hearing agenda will soon be posted to the Council’s webpage and will include information on the meeting location and instructions for those who wish to attend virtually.

Background

Historic Wallingford hosted two public meetings via Zoom webinar to discuss the development of a National Register of Historic Places nomination for the Wallingford Historic District – North. The meetings were held on October 12 and December 7, 2021. A recording of each virtual meeting is posted below.

The purpose of the meetings was to discuss the National Register process and what designation means for property owners, and to  present neighborhood history and research findings. An in-depth analysis of census data is being used to reveal a richer story of the ethnic roots and occupations of early Wallingford residents.

Historic Wallingford is grateful for the support of 4Culture.
