Seattle City Council has approved three new historic landmarks, including one right here in Queen Anne – the Ankeny/Gowey House at 912 Second Ave W.
The Ankeny/Gowy House was built in 1891 by architect/builder Rudolph Ankeny, and continues to be a single family residence protected from both demolition and exterior alteration.
The other two landmarks recently approved by the Seattle Landmarks Preservation Board and Seattle City Council include Hat ‘n’ Boots in Georgetown (build in 1954), and the Dakota Place Park building (and former power station) in West Seattle (built in 1930).
From the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods’ Historic Preservation Program press release:
Located in three neighborhoods, these landmarks exemplify the diversity and the rich cultural and architectural heritage of our City.
