The Stimson-Green Mansion is a City of Seattle landmark, a National Register-listed architectural treasure, and home to the nonprofit Washington Trust for Historic Preservation.
Once a vibrant community cultural space, playing host to meetings, concerts, theatrical performances, parties, weddings, and more, the Stimson-Green has sat empty since the onset of COVID-19 in March 2020. With this loss of event revenue, the Washington Trust has taken a significant financial hit.
Through it all, we’ve been working to complete a multi-year capital campaign in our ongoing restoration of the Stimson-Green, with one final project remaining: the repair and repointing of the building’s 121-year-old masonry. With this project complete, we will stabilize this important historic landmark for decades to come. And when social gathering is safe again, we’ll be ready to reopen our doors to the public—ready to welcome more community members, old friends, and new visitors than ever before.
Together with our funders, sponsors, and other supporters, we’re building a stronger Stimson-Green. Join us. Make a donation today.
