George and Irene Matzen House nominated!

The 1909 George and Irene Matzen House located at 320 W. Kinnear Place has been nominated to the State and National Registers of Historic Places.  You can read all about the property in this great article by Jan Hadley.  The Governor’s Advisory Council will deliberate the nomination on June 27, 2019 starting at 12:30 at El Centro de la Raza.  The Matzen House is a glorious Prairie Style design by the architectural firm of Willatsen and Byrne.  After the Queen Anne Community Club at Queen Anne Avenue and Garfield Street, the Post Office building at First North and Republican, and the Seattle Coliseum (formerly the Key Arena), the property becomes the fourth Queen Anne building to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  It is time!

The Queen Anne Historical Society will attend the Advisory Council meeting to support the nomination.
