Treasures in our midst: Friday, July 19
Historic Wallingford invites you to come and learn about the architectural character of the Wallingford bungalow. Get your architecture fix at our next event on Friday, July 19, where architectural historian and designer Thomas Veith will discuss Wallingford’s common house type—the bungalow. The material Tom presents will be great preparation for those planning to attend our Restore & Remodel Workshop and Home Tour in September. Attendees will receive an illustrated brochure featuring residences mentioned in the discussion.
Tom is the author “A Preliminary Sketch of Wallingford’s History, 1855-1985,” and in 2005 he conducted a survey of structures in Wallingford for the City of Seattle Department of Neighborhoods. He will discuss the stylistic elements most often associated with the Wallingford bungalow and how the character of these early-20th-century houses developed over time with changing tastes and typological innovation. He will also examine elements of other residential styles and related plan types that became popular in the years between the end of the Victorian era and the onset of the Depression. Tom will conclude with some comments on the significance of the bungalow as a contributor to the architectural character of the Wallingford neighborhood.
Historic Wallingford will have its Snapshot Wallingford photo-scanning station set up at the event. Please bring any photos of Wallingford you wish to share with us.
This program will begin at 7 p.m. at Discovery House / Seattle First Nazarene Church (4401 2nd Ave. NE). The event is free to Historic Wallingford members and $5 for non-members (pay at the door). Reserve your spot online; booking ends at 5 p.m. on Thursday, July 18.
