One of today’s big events: The Southwest Seattle Historical Society benefit marking the centennial of a 1913 Craftsman home in North Admiral that’s been home for more than a quarter-century to former Mayor Greg Nickels and his family. It’s not just about the Nickels family and their home, but about the history that lies in so many homes around West Seattle, and inspiration/education to restore older homes, as they have done with theirs. The video above is a quick sneak peek inside the home, if you’re still making up your mind about whether to go today. The two-part event begins with a 1-3 pm VIP session including a presentation by Greg Lange, administrative specialist from the King County Archives, former staffer from the state’s Puget Sound Regional Archives, who’s an expert in how to research your home’s history; 3-5 pm, the house is open for tours; details on tickets and activities are on the SWSHS website.
