Washington Hall and Japanese Cultural Center win $165k

In April 2010, CD News informed you of a contest put on by our then sponsor, Partners in Preservation, to award up to $1M in preservation funds to various historic and culturally significant sites across Puget Sound. 

Tuesday, Partners in Preservation announced additional eleven historic and culturally significant sites in the Sound area to receive sizable grants for historic preservation projects.  The Central District managed to snag two of the eleven significant grants.  Washington Hall received $90,000 to install new electrical service to allow the safe operation of the theater, and the Japanese Cultural & Community Center won $75,000 to rehabilitate the Center’s primary facades, including siding, windows and entry porticos.

The Urban League Building did not walk away empty-handed – receiving $5,000 as a consolation prize.

  1. They used to have hardcore shows in there, I have moshed on their dance floor, but I had been voting for Town Hall because Washington Hall was down at 3% and I didn’t want to “throw my vote away”, plus considerations of greter good, so I’m very happy Washington hall got a grant too.
