Painting State Street north to south

The 1920s were an especially prosperous time for the commercial Elk Street corridor. An important addition, bridging the original town of Sehome on the southern part of Elk Street with the second commercial corridor to the north, was the Gothic-style Bellingham Herald Building (built 1926), of steel construction faced in terra cotta and stone, at the corner of Elk and Chestnut Streets. After the Herald graced the city with this elegant six story-building, 50 merchants on Elk Street petitioned the City Council to change the street's name to the more metropolitan "State" Street, which was accomplished on April 13, 1926. The new Herald quarters added to the stock of distinguished State Street buildings dating back to the early 1900s. The Sehome Neighborhood - Then and Now
