ADVOCACY ALERT!

The historic Gilman House (built ca. 1891), a designated Seattle Landmark located at 2016 14th Ave W in Interbay/west slope of Queen Anne, is being auctioned off this week through Auction.com. Bidding starts December 4 and ends December 7, 2013, with a starting bid at $225,000. It is part of the 14th Avenue West Houses Group that was designated a landmark in 1978. Historic Seattle holds a preservation easement on the houses, including the Gilman House. The property was recently foreclosed and Chase Bank is putting it up for auction.

The houses are described in Historylink.org and in this Queen Anne News article.

Historic Seattle seeks your help to spread the word about the auction in the hopes that a preservation-friendly buyer puts in a successful bid on the Gilman House.
