Major Milestone for Sammamish Historic Landmark

At 3:00 AM Sunday morning, James and other local residents will gather to witness the move of the historic Reard-Freed House in Sammamish to its new home at the Southeast Eighth St. Park. A sustained political and fundraising effort took place over a decade to rescue the house from demolition. Native to Sammamish, James has witnessed the dramatic growth of the area since his mother and father purchased the home in 1976. James has made periodic contributions to the effort to save, move, and restore the home as a reminder of the Sammamish Plateau’s history.
