Des Moines dining hall gets a kitchen donation
Des Moines business owner and City Council Member Jeremy Nutting donates necessary kitchen equipment to historic dining hall.
Local business owner and Des Moines City Council Member Jeremy Nutting
donated needed, ‘like new’ kitchen equipment to the Des Moines Beach Park Dining Hall this month. The historic Dining Hall has undergone rehabilitation since 2008.
This donation will allow the Dining Hall to cater large events and truly serve as a community space.
The Dining Hall was built in 1934 in the Covenant Beach Park Historic District. The building was designed by one of the first female graduates of the University of Washington school of Architecture.
In June, the City was awarded a State Heritage Grant to complete the
rehabilitation with the signing of the 2013-2015 State Budget by Governor Inslee.
The City Council has been working to rehabilitate the buildings at Des
Moines Beach Park since 2007. The historic Covenant Beach district used to be a Bible camp.
