The City of Wenatchee is proud of the many historic homes and commercial buildings that have been restored and maintained to state and national historic preservation standards. The largest concentrations of historic properties are located within the Grandview Historic District (Wenatchee's Register of Historic Places), a residential area west of downtown and the Downtown Wenatchee Historic District (National Register of Historic Places) with almost 100 properties within the area bound by North First and Kittitas Streets and by Columbia and Mission Streets. Here is the full listing of the City's Register of Historic Properties.
