Freeway Park in Seattle was added to the National Register of Historic Places two months ago on December 19th, 2019.
That’s great news and is important for the future of the park, but I have to admit that reading about it gave me an odd feeling. I think of national historic places as being actually old, like buildings from the 1800s.
Freeway Park is still a sorta new park in my mind because I remember it being built when I was a teenager living in Edmonds. If it’s now historic that means I’m getting old!
