Made to Last Historic Preservation in Seattle and King County

by Lawrence Kreisman

Made to Last Historic Preservation in Seattle and King County Synopsis

Despite the relative youth of the Pacific Northwest, its buildings and historic sites are reminders of a rich and colorful heritage. Made to Last describes exemplary preservation programs in Seattle and King County, how they developed, and the process and the extent of protection offered landmark properties. Descriptions and photographs provide a guide to individual buildings and landmark districts, demonstrating how each played a part in the remarkably swift development of county and city. Examples of rehabilitation and adaptive reuse projects accomplished through creative public and private financing are described and illustrated, as are the personal stories of commitment, perseverance, and labor that have spurred the renewal of properties-designated or not-and made them useful again. Made to Last celebrates buildings whose age is not a detriment, but rather a valuable and contributing force in the community.
