The stories we pass down from generation to generation inform our experiences, lifestyle, and how we view the world. The same can be said for our homes, inside of which memories are made, cherished, and preserved for a residence’s next stewards. The homes we’re spotlighting this month do all that and more. Through history, location, how they were cared for, and their recognizable caretakers, the future owners of these homes are doing more than getting the keys to a new address—they are treasuring a storied past. Explore these homes here and be sure to follow our spotlight series each month in the Puget Sound Business Journal and GeekWire.
