Si View Park’s Historical Significance Recognized on National Registry

Si View Park makes the historic registry!

The Washington State Advisory Council on Historic Preservation and United States Department of the Interior recently announced that North Bend’s Si View Park was accepted to the National Register of Historic Places.

Si View Park holds  historical significance for its direct association with a nationwide Depression-era economic recovery program that had significant impact on the physical development of King County.

The Si View Field House is one of eight Work Projects Administration (WPA) era centers which were built for the King County park system in the 1930’s, and an excellent example of the park service rustic architectural style. The center has provided recreational opportunities for several generations of Snoqualmie Valley citizens.

The National Register records the tangible reminders of the history of the United Sates and is the official repository for documentation of cultural resources worthy of preservation. A professional review board in each state considers each property proposed for listing and makes a recommendation on its eligibility. Si View Park was added on January 7th.

Si View Park is owned and operated by the Si View Metropolitan Park District. The District works in partnership with the community to preserve historic Si View Park for future generations.
