Loita Hawkinson, the Editor writes,

“On May 27, 2015 please join us for an evening lecture with State Architectural Historian Michael Houser. Mr. Houser will be sharing his knowledge of Post WWII design and construction and how a variety of local and regional designers helped shape the built environment of Kirkland during the 1950s and 60s. Learn about typical styles and features of ranch houses and split levels, as well as more upscale designs from Pacific Northwest Regional and Meisian.

“Also joining the discussion is noted architectural historian Mimi Sheridan who will be recording midcentury resources in Kirkland later this Spring. Learn about her project and how you can get involved in preserving this unique aspect of Kirkland’s history.”
