Seattle City Council Approves Designation of Two Historic Landmarks on Capitol Hill

Gaslight Inn

J.W. Bullock House

Seattle City Council approved landmark designation ordinances for the Gaslight Inn and the J.W. Bullock House. Located on Capitol Hill, these buildings join the more than 400 landmarks in the city that represent our rich cultural, historical, and architectural heritage. Both landmarks were nominated by the owners.

The city’s Landmarks Preservation Board approved the nomination, designation, and controls and incentives for these landmarks and provided the draft ordinances to the Seattle City Council. The final step in the process was approval by City Council which occurred on Monday, September 12.

The new landmarks:

  • Gaslight Inn built in 1904 (address: 1727 15th Avenue)
    • The architect is unknown
  • J.W. Bullock House built in 1912 (address: 1220 10th Avenue E)
    • Architect/Builder: Louis O. Menard


Seattle Department of Neighborhoods Historic Preservation Program is responsible for the designation and protection of more than 400 historic structures, sites, objects, and vessels, as well as eight historic districts located throughout the city.
