Finn Hill Properties Before 1950

Kirkland’s newly annexed area properties built prior to 1950 are now being surveyed. Do you know of a Finn Hill property built before 1950? Learn more about the “Historic Property Inventory Project.” You are invited to the September 25th Kirkland Heritage Society Annual Blackberry Sundae Social at Heritage Hall. A presentation will be made that evening by King County Historic Preservation officers explaining the whys and wherefores of the Historic Property Inventory Project as well as touching upon the criteria and incentives of owning a Landmarked property in Kirkland.

    I am interested in “the criteria and incentives of owning a Landmarked property in Kirkland”. Our lot has been here a long, long time. County found the house in 1945…no idea how old, other than architecture leans towards 1929, and a postcard in the kitchen wall was of the Golden Gate Bridge being built in what, 1936?

    Hi Dave, Wow, it sure sounds from your description that your property might very well qualify for ‘landmark.’ Plan on attending the Sept 25th Kirkland Heritage Society (KHS) presentation to learn more. If you cannot attend then contact Loita Hawkinson, President of the KHS, her contact info is inside the newsletter: Blackberry Preserves.
