Historic Seattle believes that buildings provide an essential link to the past, reminding us of who we are and where we came from. Founded in 1974, Historic Seattle is the only nonprofit membership organization dedicated to preserving Seattle and King County's architectural legacy. Their mission is to educate, advocate and preserve.
As both a public development authority and charitable foundation Historic Seattle is a major advocate for, and participant in, the thoughtful and meaningful preservation and rehabilitation of historic buildings. They have helped protect and preserve dozens of irreplaceable buildings. They also advocate for preservation by urging policy makers, developers and citizens to consider the value of historic buildings. Finally, Historic Seattle offers a year-round program of educational lectures and tours to increase public awareness of our vibrant architectural heritage.
Kevin Daniels served on the governing council for eight years, including a term as chairman. Daniels Development continues to support the work of Historic Seattle in a number of efforts as the organization tries to educate, advocate and preserve the architectural heritage of the City of Seattle.
In 2006, working jointly with Historic Seattle, Kevin Daniels won a National Preservation Award for the organization’s work on preserving the historic Cadillac Hotel damaged by the Nisqually earthquake. The building is now the home of the Klondike Gold Rush National Park – Seattle.
