You have the opportunity to help King Street Station win vital restoration funding. The station is participating in the 2010 Partners in Preservation (PiP) program. This is the fifth year of the program that offers 25 historic projects the opportunity to win funding to complete a significant aspect of the project. King Street Station is fortunate to be a part of this year’s program, seeking funding for restoration of the grand staircase leading from the Jackson Street Plaza to the lower main waiting room of the station. This funding would restore the granite and marble stairs and brass decorative features.
We need your help in order to win these funds. PiP offers the public a chance to vote once per day for their favorite historic project between April 15, 2010 and May 12, 2010. The winner of the public vote will be announced on May 13, 2010 and is guaranteed to receive a grant. Please show your support for one of Seattle’s most beloved landmark’s by doing the following:
