The following display boards were put together to provide a little bit of history about Houghton, the Lake Washington Shipyards (now Carillon Point), Parks and the City's Police Department. In addition, some background is provided on the railroad corridor (now the Cross Kirkland corridor) and freeways. You can download the files using the arrow at the bottom of each page.
Additional historical photos of the Houghton area are also included on the Historical Photos page of this site. (Still in process)
