FOLLOWUP: Save The Stone Cottage campaign almost halfway to goal

Two weeks after launching a crowdfunding campaign, Save The Stone Cottage is almost halfway to its fundraising goal. The group of local preservation advocates and volunteers is aiming to raise $110,000 to move the stone-studded beach bungalow off its site at 1123 Harbor SW before a redevelopment project starts construction. As of today, the campaign has passed $47,000. Save The Stone Cottage is working with building-moving experts Nickel Bros to move the century-old structure to a temporary site next month – likely storage at a Port of Seattle site nearby – until a new permanent site is found. More backstory is in our previous coverage here and here; donations are welcome here.

    Have they asked our counselor Lisa Herbold if the city would take ownership and move it across the street to Seacrest Park or the Port of Seattle to Jack Block Park so it stays at Alki? Or Mee Kwa Mooks or the park at the corner of Alaska and 42nd?

      She participated in the 12/11 news conference about the campaign launch. Advocates had already made a pitch to the city – we covered that last year – but as she noted, that went on the back burner when the pandemic landed on the front burner, but she hopes the subject can be reopened next year. – TR
