Historic house, one of state’s oldest, preserved at Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve
COUPEVILLE – Preservation nonprofit Historic Whidbey announced today its purchase of the 1866 Granville & Henrietta Haller House and the permanent protection of Penn Cove shoreline in historic Coupeville, Washington. Funding for the acquisition came in the form of generous grants from the National Park Foundation, the National Park Trust, the Norcliffe Foundation, the Coupeville Lions, and scores of private benefactors from the community and beyond.
“The Haller House is one of the state’s oldest homes in one of its most authentic founding communities,” said Lynn Hyde, executive director of Historic Whidbey. “It truly took the whole village to save this landmark cultural & natural resource for the community.”
