It’s been a long haul since the November kick-off, but wait until you see what over a hundred volunteers mapped over 1,000+ hours and what it reveals. There’s an extraordinary amount of historic buildings in Greater Ballard. The maps created from all the data (7,300+ structures, 14,600 photos) include the historic research and allow you to “swipe” between early Ballard and current Ballard. The project identified over 2,500 structures with some sort of historic or architectural significance, and of those, another 670 were nominated as “Vintage” and 159 as “Select”.
Do not miss the celebration party on June 4th at the Sunset Hill Community Association Clubhouse:

You’ve earned the celebration in over 829 ways (yes that is a hint). Invite your friends! Everyone is welcome to come party for the love of Ballard! The event kicks off at 6pm tonight and runs until 10pm.
