Kirkland Historic Properties.

King County Historic Preservation Officer Julie Koler and King County Preservation Architect Todd Scott gave a very informative summery about the value for Kirkland to have a historic properties inventory.  Senior Planner Angela Ruggeri summarized the project and how the City plans to move forward including the newly annexed areas of Kirkland.  Volunteers Glenn Landguth and David Sherbrooke spoke about their involvement in the project.  Both have deep roots in Kirkland which may have helped spark their interest as they toured the neighborhoods.  Later in the evening, LWSH Senior and winner of the 2012 Christine Neir Memorial Scholarship, Marin Harris, gave a shortened version of her program about the Kellett Home.  This home is on the inventory.  Thank you all for participating.
