Time running out to find oldest house in the ‘hood

by | Jan 12, 2010

You’ve got until Friday to enter your house in the Greenwood-Phinney Historical Society’s contest to locate the oldest house in the neighborhood.

Houses must be within the Phinney-Greenwood neighborhood (50th to 105th Streets, Aurora to 8th Avenue NW) but contest entrants need not live within the neighborhood. The house does not need to be yours! You can enter any house that you feel might be the oldest! More than one entry per person is acceptable.

Once you find a likely winner, take a photo and send copies of your documents identifying the construction date of the house to: GPHS Oldest House Contest, c/o Phinney Neighborhood Center, 6532 Phinney Ave. N., Seattle, WA 98103.

You can find more tips here on researching the age of your house.

The winning entry will be determined by oldest construction or building permit date of all entries received. Entries must be received by Jan. 15. The winner receives a copy of “Seattle’s Greenwood-Phinney Neighborhood” signed by author Ted Pedersen and breakfast for two at Mae’s Phinney Ridge Café.
