National Historic District

Status: Still Standing

Year Listed: 2010

Location: Kittitas County

The City of Roslyn is a National, State and Local Historic District consisting of approximately 900 property lots and 600 residential, commercial and community structures. Many structures suffer from deferred maintenance and neglect, in some cases resulting in demolition, and new construction is often incompatible with the historic character of the town. Furthermore, the Historic District is endangered by the continuing loss of forest lands on the town’s perimeter. Without consideration to the town’s historic core, additional development (if unchecked) may continue to erode the historic fabric that makes Roslyn one of Washington’s truly unique and significant historic centers.
