For the second time this week, the City of Edmonds Historic Preservation Commission recognized the addition of a home to the city’s Historic Register — this one the Yost House at 658 Maple St.
The other house recognized this week was the Scalf House, located at 645 Fir St.
According to Historic Preservation Commission meeting minutes, the Yost house is associated with the Yost family, an early pioneer family extensively involved in the early development of Edmonds. “The family was active in the lumbering, sawmill, shingle, water supply, telephone, automotive and bus transportation businesses and are the namesake of Yost Park,” the minutes said.
Built in 1907 by Charles E. and Georgie Yost, the home was purchased in 2006 by Greg and Kathy Brewer. Greg Brewer has his own remodeling company and the couple made extensive interior renovations after moving in.
