If you want to get a last minute look or picture of the historic Skykomish Hotel you’ll need to hurry.
The Town, which earlier obtained a court order to demolish the historic structure, is set to begin demolition August 12th.
The Town’s silence regarding this matter has led to speculation that the motivating factor is a desire to avoid an expensive environmental cleanup of the land beneath the soon to be ‘former’ Hotel which has been severely polluted with diesel and bunker oils by BNSF Railway fueling operations.
Less than thirty days from now the Skykomish Hotel will be nothing more than a memory. It’s time to say your goodbyes.
