Kirkland Landmark Commission to host "Kirkland Modern" meeting, Sept 28

“Kirkland Modern” will be the topic for a special meeting sponsored  by the City of Kirkland and the Kirkland Landmark Commission.

The City of Kirkland began working with the local heritage community in 1976 to identify and recognize historic resources.  Since that time, several historic surveys have been conducted. Last year, the City received a grant from 4Culture to study houses built in the decades after World War II.  This was a critical time in our city’s history –more than 3,000 houses were built between 1945 and 1965, shaping neighborhood character for decades. The residences range from intriguing architect-designed homes to Modernist subdivisions and Ranch houses  planned for big families.

Historic Consultant, Mimi Sheridan, will be presenting her research  of the most interesting subdivisions and architects and highlight a variety of houses that shaped these suburban neighborhoods.

Please join us at Heritage Hall, 203 Market Street, Kirkland.  MondaySeptember 28 at 7:00 p.m.
