Saint Edward Planning - Seminary

Seminary Building with people walking up to it

Washington State Parks is beginning a planning process to evaluate a potential long-term lease of the seminary building located at Saint Edward State Park. The seminary structure and associated cultural landscape were listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2007.

During the past several months, a group of historic preservation, political, and community leaders, has been meeting with Washington State Parks, to discuss how to preserve the Saint Edward Seminary building and grounds. In response to emerging potential for partnerships, the Washington State Parks Commission adopted a resolution on November 14, 2013 authorizing the Director to “explore partnerships with other public and private sector entities for the purpose of rehabilitating the Saint Edward Seminary building.”

On September 18th, The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission will consider a range of management options for the Seminary.
