Preservation Of Historic Cemetery

     I partnered with the Medical Lake Cemetary Association to have the Medical Lake and Jerue Cemetery placed on the state historic register. In the spring of 2017, I began working on a nomination package for the Medical Lake Cemetery Association to have the cemetery listed as a historic site. I submitted the package in the fall of 2017 to the Washington Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation. The package came back corrected with a request for my input on additional revisions. I sent back my ideas and the final nomination package went forward to the Governor’s Advisory Council on Historic Preservation.

     In February I received a letter inviting me to attend the review meeting to be held in early March in Seattle. The President of the Medical Lake Cemetery Association was unable to attend the meeting but I went. The Council voted unanimously (8:0) to add the cemetery to the Washington Heritage Register of Historic Places. 

     A few days later the local newspaper ran an article about the project. Spokesmen Review Article here.
