This Place is the quarterly publication of the Washington Trust for Historic Preservation. We recently changed the name of the publication from Trust News to This Place to better reflect our mission to preserve and protect this place we love and call home. Not only does the phrase “this place” refer to Washington as a whole, but to each of the cities, towns, sites, structures, landscapes, and cultural features throughout the state we all cherish and strive to protect.
This publication began as the Washington Trust’s organizational newsletter, and it will continue to communicate news and information about our work to our members and the public. We also hope to use it to better illuminate the diverse stories Washington has to offer and better fulfill our role as your voice for preservation in Washington State. We are your voice when we advocate for resources that are endangered and when we fight for good public policy that will help us protect our historic places, but we are also your connection to the statewide preservation community. We hope This Place will serve as a key source for information, news, and inspiring stories about preservation in Washington State.
Please continue to keep us updated; send us your success stories and alert us to preservation issues in your local communities. Together we can grow our effort to be better connected and more engaged with our fellow Washingtonians in protecting This Place.
