BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Historic Preservation Northwest will be giving a presentation of the Sehome Neighborhood Historic Building Survey next Tuesday.

Paid for in part by a $15,000 grant from the Washington State Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation, a team documented the age, integrity and importance of some 300 properties in the neighborhood.

The findings will help educate property owners and help them find ways and incentives to preserve the historic buildings when making long-term land use decisions.

The July 23 public presentation will be held at the Bellingham City Hall at 7:00 p.m.
