Story

Two landmark property owners who have significantly enhanced North Bend and Snoqualmie’s historic downtowns, a unique Snoqualmie museum that restored a caboose associated with the region’s logging industry; and partners involved in creating an exemplary interpretive center at Scenic on the Iron Goat Trail are all being honored by King County next week in celebration of National Historic Preservation Month.

King County will honor the four remarkable projects at the 10th Annual John D. Spellman Awards for Achievement in Historic Preservation. The awards ceremony will take place on Friday, May 29, 2009 from 10:00 a.m. to noon at Meadowbrook Farm Interpretive Center, 1711 Boalch Avenue, North Bend, Washington.

This year’s Awards will honor achievement in four categories: interpretation, restoration, rehabilitation, and reconstruction.
Also at this year’s ceremony the King County Road Services Division’s Heritage Corridors Program will be saluted; Skykomish and North Bend centennial plans unveiled; and historic markers presented to owners of landmarks in Auburn, Skykomish and Kent.

The awards program was named after the first King County Executive, John D. Spellman, under whose leadership in 1980 the King County Historic Preservation Program and Landmarks Commission were established.

This year’s awards ceremony will be presided over by the Honorable Kathy Lambert, King County Councilmember, District 3, representing northeast King County—including the Snoqualmie Valley.
