Join Historic Seattle for our Summer Members Meeting/Learning from Historic Sites event on Saturday, July 27th from 10:00 – 11:30 am.  The meeting will take place at the Eastside Heritage Center/Winters House, 2102 Bellevue Way SE in Bellevue.

The Winters House was built in 1929 for Frederick and Cecilia Winters, who came to Washington in 1906 and established a thriving wholesale florist business in Bellevue.  This residence is important for both its Spanish Revival design and its association with the bulb growing and floricultural industry in King County and Washington State.  The building survives as one of the few remaining buildings from the area’s past agricultural era.

Following a short Historic Seattle business meeting, the Eastside Heritage Center’s Executive Director Heather Trescases will give a talk on the historic background of the Winters House and its setting.  Afterwards, Education Coordinator Jane Morton will take participants on a stroll along the Mercer Slough boardwalk adjoining the property.  You can also use this opportunity to visit the Arts & Crafts booths at the Bellevue Arts Fair at Bellevue Square and Bellevue Arts Museum.

Please plan to arrive in time for our 10 am start time.

Directions:  From I-90, take the Bellevue Way exit and drive north 0.6 miles.  Turn right into parking lot at the sign for the Winters House.

Hope to see you there!
