Puget Sound area icons of the past split $750,000 grant

Congratulations to our friends at the Adventuress, who use the boat as a floating environmental training facility. If you have never taken a ride on her, you should do so this summer. With the economy in tatters, it’s a good idea to spend your vacation dollars closer to home. It’s also environmentally the best thing to do!- Editor

… The first place winners — Town Hall on Seattle’s First Hill and a 136-foot wooden ship called Schooner Adventuress — were chosen by the public in a campaign that ended last month. Each was awarded $125,000.
