Properties in Hoquiam surveyed for historic relevance; meeting scheduled to review

The City of Hoquiam conducted a survey of historic property and will present their findings at an upcoming meeting.

In a statement the city and the Historic Preservation Commission say that they have contracted with Northwest Vernacular, Inc. to conduct “a reconnaissance-level historic property survey” 

The area under review runs from Emerson Avenue to Washington Avenue, between Lincoln and Garfield Streets.

In their statement, they say that a grant from the Washington State Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation pays for the survey to document properties that are over 50 years old. This survey will only record information that can be seen from the public right-of-way, including building type, physical description, and architectural style.

The contractor will present information that they found about the homes at a meeting on Wednesday, July 17 at 4:15 pm.

The public meeting will go over the findings, as well as discuss how the homes in the region tie in with the area’s history and discuss if they may be eligible for historic recognition.

The meeting will be open to the public.
