Adaptive Reuse Returns Historic Schoolhouse to Former Prominence

Originally built in 1909, Woodinville’s Schoolhouse No. 23 has been empty for more than a decade. Fast forward to today, and the historic building is being revitalized and restored by MainStreet Property Group.

In addition, Walla Walla Steak Co. and Crossbuck Brewing have leased the entire building as part of The Schoolhouse District, a new mixed-use community project coming to downtown Woodinville, according to MainStreet Property Group LLC and partner HAL Real Estate. The two connected restaurant concepts will be part of the Revelers Club loyalty program associated with iconic Puget Sound dining and lodging locations.

The 5-acre Schoolhouse District project provides a destination experience with modern architecture alongside a restored and repurposed building.
