2018 was busy and eventful. (See Hotel Lincoln 2018 Goals and Update for a review of 2017 and a 2018 forecast.)
- By the end of summer 2018 the 13 double hung windows were installed, along with the complete rehabilitation and installation of 13 Queen Anne windows. In addition, the 3’x5’ Queen Anne window was rehabbed and installed over the newly restored lobby doors. All of the exterior trims were finished down to the caulking between the trim and brick.
- Footings and preparation for stem walls in the storefront were completed, and the storefront structural and framing is the next project on the docket for spring 2019.
- The vintage "Electric Hotel" sign is being restored and should be back to the hotel this spring. We look forward to the sign lighting up the corner of 3rd and Sherlock once again. It has not been lit up for over 40 years.
Institute for Washington’s Future will continue to support our window fundraising efforts as we still have over 40 windows to replace. We appreciate all of the generous donations that were given to the project last year. Thank you! Your generous contributions make a difference.
