Historic Mt Baker Neighborhood – National Register of Historic Places

The Friends of Mt Baker Town Center are excited to have the opportunity to document the historic, architectural and cultural background of the Mt Baker Neighborhood, with the generous support of 4Culture and our knowledgeable consultants at nwVernacular.  Following the initial public meeting, a dedicated group of volunteers was trained to conduct field work with property profiles for over 800 homes in the Mt Baker Park Addition.   That work is almost complete!   In addition, nwVernacular has prepared an architect map that has been of great interest to residents throughout the neighborhood (see below).

  • Public Meeting No. 2 – October 23, 2017.  Please save October 23, 2017 so you can attend the second public meeting in the historic district nomination process, and get an update on the findings and analyses we have generated through this 4Culture project.   Stay tuned for details and location.

Thanks to everyone for the continuing interest and support for our effort to document the neighborhood’s historic and cultural values.   The nomination process focuses on the neighborhood, prior to 1968.   If you have specific information related to the architecture, culture, and/or history of our community up through 1968, please pass it on and we will share it with our consultant team.

Here is an updated version of the Architect Map, with new and improved colors for easier reference!   If you have additional architect background, please pass it on.
