Save the Stone Cottage


Stone Cottage to roll on Tuesday, Aug. 17  

The Stone Cottage move to proceed without parade and ceremony.

West Seattle, WA — Aug. 9, 2021. The moving date is SET! The historic Stone Cottage is about to embark on its First Mile road trip.

The stone-studded cottage has been a beloved and legendary landmark in West Seattle for 90 years. Threatened with demolition, the Stone Cottage has been saved by the community, and is going to be moved into secure storage at the Port of Seattle just a mile south of its 1123 Harbor Ave SW location.

This ‘First Mile’ move will be on the evening of Tuesday, Aug. 17, 2021, starting at 11:45 p.m. and going until approximately 2 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 18. All are invited to watch the convoy from the Harbor Avenue SW sidewalk.
