The nomination for the Wallingford-Meridian Streetcar Historic District to the National Register of Historic Places was considered at a public hearing of the Washington State Advisory Council on Historic Preservation on October 14, 2022.
Historic Wallingford is pleased to report that the Advisory Council voted in unanimous support of the nomination. It has been forwarded to the Keeper of the National Register of Historic Places for consideration. A ruling is expected by the end of 2022.
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.
