Kirkland Heritage Society will be sponsoring the eighth annual Kirkland History Month.

Starting in 2011, Kirkland Heritage Society has had 15 historic plaques made. Fifteen local businesses displayed the plaques for the month of February and the City of Kirkland later proclaimed that February would be dedicated to celebrating the city’s history.

In 2012, banners were made and more plaques were added to the collection. Today, there are over 100 plaques displayed in downtown Kirkland, Juanita Village and Carillon Point.

Kirkland residents are encouraged to share photos pertaining to the city’s history to KHS.
