Ballard’s Street Name Legacy
Join us Wednesday, November 16, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. to learn artist Benson Shaw’s work on preserving the blue-and-white street name tiles you see embedded in Ballard’s streets. Shaw specializes in public art and historic restoration. He’ll lead us along the journey from Ballard’s earth paths to wood planks to cement streets. Learn more about the blue marker tiles that harken back to Ballard’s older street names. Benson’s work is sponsored by 4Culture Preservation Special Projects. Learn more about Benson Shaw.

Drink Up! for Ballard Historical Society on Aug 11
Reuben’s Brews pitched in to help Ballard Historical Society this year on Thursday, August 11. A brew purchased anytime from 3:00 to close benefited BHS’ efforts to preserve and celebrate Ballard’s history. This year, we’ve completed a grant to survey all of Ballard’s buildings within the mapping area and put on a successful classic house tour. Lots to celebrate, so thank you to Reuben’s Brews and their patrons!

On Sunday, June 26, tour-goers enjoyed eight vintage houses built between 1892-1934. These well-maintained homes drew us back to an era of solid craftsmanship, beauty, and style. While we admired their beauty, we also saw how necessary updates could be integrated while still embracing the scale and construction period.
