Because of its architectural significance and landscape design, The former Weyerhaeuser corporate campus is eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places, the official list of our country's historic buildings, districts, sites, structures, and objects worthy of preservation. Authorized by the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, the register is part of National Park Service program to coordinate and support public and private efforts to identify, evaluate, and protect America's historic and archeological resources. Read more about the program.
In 2017, the Washington Trust for Historic Preservation named the former Weyerhaeuser Corporate Campus to its annual Most Endangered Places list. Its video announcement included rare interviews from George Weyerhaeuser, who led development of the campus, and renowned landscape architect Peter Walker, who designed the campus early in his career; one of his more recent projects is the landscape for the National September 11 Memorial in New York City.
For more than 25 years, the Trust has brought awareness to more than 150 buildings, sites and historic places around the state that are threatened by development or neglect, and some 100 have been saved. The Trust is a significant partner in the efforts of Save Weyerhaeuser Campus to preserve, protect and retain the unique character of the historic campus, and advocate for redevelopment that is appropriate to its historic significance and community legacy.
In 2016, The Cultural Landscape Foundation in Washington, D.C., listed the historic Weyerhaeuser campus an "at-risk landscape. Read the organization's description of the significance of the campus.
