The Summer Solstice at the Historic Coleman House in West Seattle was a lovely setting last night for a fundraiser for Attorney General Candidate Bob Ferguson, hosted by Dow Constantine at the home of environmental benefactor Maryann Tagney-Jones.

The house where the event was held is a wonderful story too. Environmental Advocate Marayanne Tagney-Jones and her husband David Jones, have been restoring this historic building for the last year. It is the home of Laurence Coleman, built by architect Arthur Lovelace in 1922. His Father, James Coleman,  built the Coleman Dock and the Puget Sound Navigation Company at the wharf on Elliot Bay and for whom the Coleman Pool was named.
