Tukwila Landmarks Commission designates Boeing Red Barn as landmark

On Thursday night (March 22), the Tukwila Landmarks Commission designated the Boeing Red Barn (aka Boeing Airplane Company Building 105) as the newest Tukwila Landmark.

West elevation of the building with drafting offices on the second floor.

1917 image in its original location on the Duwamish River.

Interior of the first floor. Original timber posts show where the bottom 10 or 12 inches had to be replaced in-kind due to many years of use and rot.

Same space in 1918. Producing pontoons for the Model C floatplane.

These 110 year old timbers are still in pretty good shape!

It’s prominently featured at the Museum of Flight, and has been restored to its 1917 appearance.

“Congratulations! Thanks to Sarah Martin & Flo Lentz for preparing an amazing nomination, and to the Museum of Flight for these great historic images.”
