The Issaquah Sportsmen’s Club on March 27 received landmark status from the county Landmarks and Heritage Commission, celebrating the architectural and social significance of the rustic-style structure built by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) in 1937.

Erik Erickson, club historian, said he was pleased with the commission’s unanimous decision. He said getting the distinction had taken several years.

“I think it’s a unique building, No. 1, and I think the structure was worth saving,” Erickson said.
