Congratulations go out to the Sammamish Heritage Society on their recent $123,400 grant award from the Washington State Historical Society; the funds will go toward the reconstruction of a historical kitchen wing of the Reard House and additional interior renovation improvements.

The City works in partnership with the Sammamish Heritage Society as they preserve the history and heritage of the city. In order for the Historical Society to be considered for the grant, the City offered a matching in-kind donation, contingent on the development of Big Rock Park Site B Phase I Improvements. Park improvements directly related to the house include roof drain connections, a new water line, an electrical service connection, a new septic system, and associated costs.

This grant award is yet another effort of the Sammamish Heritage Society’s continuing efforts to restore the Reard House. The City supports these efforts because of the extraordinary historic benefit to Big Rock Park and the Sammamish community.
