Results of historic survey of Sehome Neighborhood to be revealed July 23


The results of a survey of historic buildings in Bellingham's Sehome Neighborhood will be presented to the public at 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 23, in City Council chambers, at City Hall, 210 Lottie St.

With help from a $15,000 state grant, the survey was done by a team from Historic Preservation Northwest, preservation consultants based in Oregon. The team used research and photographs to document the age, architectural style and the historic integrity and significance of about 300 neighborhood properties more than 50 years old.

The results, along with 150 previously surveyed properties, have been added to a state database online at

Such surveys identify properties that are potentially eligible for national, state, and local historic registers, and can help guide decisions by property owners and local governments.
