The City of Seattle Landmarks Preservation Board will hold a public meeting on Wednesday, February 15 at 3:30 p.m. to consider the landmark nomination of the Jefferson Park Golf Course Clubhouse.

All interested are invited to attend and comment. Written comments are also welcome, and should be received by the Landmarks Board by February 14 at 5 p.m. Comments may be mailed to:

Seattle Landmarks Preservation Board
Dept. of Neighborhoods
P.O. Box 94649
Seattle WA 98124-4649

The landmark nomination application includes an extremely detailed description of the building as well as a summary of Beacon Hill and Jefferson Park history, and may be viewed here (PDF link), as well as at the Beacon Hill Library.

The clubhouse, which was built in 1936, has been nominated by Bassetti Architects, the firm that is involved in a development project which would tear the building down and replace it with a larger facility. It is not uncommon for sites to be nominated as landmarks by their owners or representatives before a development project can begin.

The February 15 meeting will be held in the Seattle Municipal Tower, 700 5th Ave., Suite 1700. Further information about landmark preservation and the nomination process may be found at the Department of Neighborhoods website.

  1. The Landmarks Preservation Board nominated the Gatehouse in Jefferson Park, which saved the building and the history it represents from demolition.

    The trend at this 100 year old park is toward architectural and historic preservation. The Jefferson Park Golf Clubhouse, the Gatehouse, and the Firehouse all represent the history of Jefferson Park at different stages. Each building is equally important to that history.

    The Landmarks preservation Board also accepts email, as well as U.S postal mail. You can contact them here:
