Early Snohomish Heritage Trail

Only six of the nine Early Snohomish Heritage Trail signs designed have been installed in the existing kiosks along the south side of First Street. The three remaining signs: one, two, and nine are shown here in the portrait format, but will be installed in the landscape format.

Wendy Poischbeg, the city’s Economic Development, and Communications Manager was awarded a Historic Preservation grant from Snohomish County for the signs and as the project manager, she is the one to contact to learn when the remaining signs will be installed.

A special thanks to copyeditor Melanie Kreiger, and graphic designer David Chrisman for their careful reviews — it takes a village.

“J. S. White Our First Architect”

js white book cover
 

Our fine art book, J. S. White, Our First Architect: His Surviving Structures from 19th-Century Snohomish, features essays by local historian Warner Blake (Early Snohomish, Snohomish: Then and Now), and color portraits by Seattle photographer Otto Greule. White left nothing behind except his buildings, so Warner combed through over a decade of weekly issues published by the Snohomish Eye to discover White’s story and identify his structures.

Reviews

“Researching the history of the architecture in small towns like Snohomish is often an impossible task. Early cities and towns had little or no requirements for building permits, early architects’ records are typically nonexistent, and other information, if it exists, can be extremely difficult to dig up. Thus it is quite unusual that we have a new book that documents and illustrates the work of pioneer Snohomish architect and builder John S. White (1845–1920).

(UW Professor Jeffrey Karl Ochsner’s essay is no longer available online.)
