Please come to the front door of the main house and ring the bell. Enter the house if the door is unlocked. The front door remains locked when unattended by a greeter. If you are delayed or unable
to attend, please text or call your host to notify in case the group is already assembled upstairs.
Please Note: If there are other events in the main house when you arrive and your group is not there to meet you, please let the greeter know you have a meeting on the Third Floor and head upstairs. Turn
left at the top stairs and go through the first door on the left that leads to a separate hallway. Turn right and go up the stairs marked private that leads to the top floor, which is the old staff quarters.
The Stimson-Green Mansion (SGM) is a local City of Seattle Landmark, listed on both the Washington Heritage Register and the National Register for Historic Places. It is not ADA accessible due to its age and historical status. Accommodations can be arranged for a stair lift to be used via the main entrance. Please contact your host for details.
The WA Preservation Trust is happy to arrange tours whenever feasible; however, meeting attendees are requested to remain with their meeting host in the designated office at all other times. The Mansion
houses offices for other nonprofit organizations so your cooperation in respecting all parties’ use of the space is appreciated.
There are many bus stops within blocks of the house. If you take the Link Light Rail, both the University St. Station and the Westlake Station are .7 miles away.
