The City received a grant from the Washington State Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation (DAHP) to hire a consultant to prepare nomination forms for a select number of properties for listing on the local historic register. The intent is to assist property owners with the listing process and cover some of the expenses.
If you’re interested in listing your property on the local historic register, we would like to hear from you!
