Carmichael’s Hardware and Variety store recently was honored with the King County Executive’s John D. Spellman Heritage Award for Excellence in Historic Preservation.

At a presentation held at the Si View Community Center in North Bend on December 7, King County Historic Preservation Officer Jennifer Meisner honored Carmichael’s along with several other initiatives, including Tollgate Farm in the Si View Parks District.

“We appreciate our customers, who are affirming to us on a daily basis,” Thomas said. “It is also wonderful to receive this formal recognition from King County.”
