Save the Stairs…Vote in Pairs

King Street Station is one of Seattle’s treasured landmarks and you have the chance to help win vital funds to restore it. If you’ve been to the station recently, you know that the public staircase from the Jackson Street Plaza on the north side of the station is closed. That’s because it’s in need of restoration to make it safe and accessible. Once restored, a central connection between Jackson Street and the main waiting room of the station will be available. It’s going to take some funding, though, to help bring full restoration to reality.

King Street Station is one of 25 historic Puget Sound sites participating in the Partners in Preservation (PiP) program. The program allows the public to vote on their favorite project once EVERY DAY until May 12 (that’s right…you CAN vote daily!). The project with the most votes is guaranteed to win grant funding. We need your help to show how much the station means to you. Please go online here to vote and tell a friend to vote too. Also check us out on Facebook to view exclusive photos and videos of the project as well as opportunities to enter our weekly raffle.
