Museum archivist appointed to Historic Preservation Commission

Coupeville resident Sarah Aldrich was recently appointed to the Historic Preservation Commission.

Aldrich is an archivist with the Island County Historical Museum. She also owns a historic home in town.

Mayor Molly Hughes recommended Aldrich’s appointment to the board because “her experience with island history, ownership of a historic property and familiarity of the reserve and the Ebey’s Forever Grant program, in (my) opinion, will make her a well-qualified member of the HPC.”

In her letter of interest, Aldrich said that she frequently helps individuals at the museum research properties when applying for Ebey’s Forever grants or to help them prepare for an HPC review.

“I run, hike, bike and generally enjoy the environment and unique landscape of Central Whidbey,” Aldrich wrote. “It would be an honor to serve on the HPC to protect what we have and to aid in its stewardship.”
