Polish Home Expansion Project

Donations

l

New Wing Constructed 2008-2010


The goal of the Polish Home Expansion Project was to add a new wing to the Polish Home building on Capitol Hill that since 1918 serves as the Polish Cultural Center in Seattle. Thanks to generous support of the Polish community members and friends, the fundraising committee gathered enough funds to for this to happen.

The construction of the new wing and the following remodeling of the old part of the building was achieved in 2008-2010. Now the project is almost done. Following the construction phase, the focus of the project was to pay off the construction debt that started at $200,000. This has been quite successful as well. As of Feb 2013 there is only about $20,000 debt left.


The building

The Polish Home building started as a dance hall in 1902 and in fact was one of the most popular dance halls in Seattle in the 1930s. Today, it has changed its character. It is home to multiple organizations important to the Polish community and a scene of many cultural events.


The expansion added a new library that doubles as a meeting room, exhibition place and a small theater with Polish TV or film club meetings. It also brought in a new, wide staircase and a very much needed elevator to the building accessible to the disabled and the elderly but also to wide community with an ease of access to the upper floor. Also a new living quarters for the Polish Home manager have been included in the project. Finally, the old part of the building has been remodeled with more functional kitchen and new storage space coming from the old library and the space used by the old stairs before the construction. The icing on the cake is a nice light colored façade of the building and russet tiles inside that both regulars and guests seem to like a lot.

 

This page is an homage to people who supported the project and made it happen, especially to all the donors.

More details about the campaign and the Master Plan for the Polish Home expansion and remodeling can be found here.
