Oldest house in the neighborhood contest winner

February 19th, 2010 · No Comments

A couple weeks ago we announced the winner of the Oldest House in the Neighborhod Contest, sponsored by the Greenwood-Phinney Historical Society. But at the time we didn’t have any pictures. Well, now we’ve got them.

Anna & Scott Sturgeon of Phinney Ridge entered and won the “Oldest House” contest last month! They received a certificate for “Breakfast for Two” at Mae’s Phinney Ridge Cafe and an autographed copy of “Seattle’s Greenwood-Phinney Neighborhood” by Ted Pedersen. Thanks to Mae’s Cafe for providing the breakfast certificate and to the GPHS for the autographed book!

While their house is not the oldest in the neighborhood, they did complete the required research including obtaining their building permit from 1902, which fulfilled the spirit of the contest – researching and treasuring our architectural heritage.

Here’s what their house looked like in 1937.

And here it is today.
