The Laurelhurst Community Club (LCC), formerly the Laurelhurst Improvement Club, was established in 1920 to foster the improvement and beautification of the Laurelhurst neighborhood. It seeks to identify and address community concerns and to provide a forum to promote solutions by working with the community at large, other civic organizations, and government. LCC Trustees and many others serve on committees, represent the community in other organizations, and work on community improvement or special projects or specific issues such as crime prevention, transportation, or land use. These neighbors contribute hundreds of hours each year to maintain the livability and vitality of our community. If there is anything of concern or interest to Laurelhurst neighbors, you can be sure that LCC is on top of it!

Villa Academy traces its roots to 1903, when the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart founded their first orphanage and school in Seattle on Beacon Hill. In 1914, Mother Cabrini (now St. Frances Xavier Cabrini) moved her mission to the Laurelhurst campus in Seattle, its current location. Villa’s two main buildings were designed by John Graham Sr. in 1924 and a gymnasium was added in the late 1950s. The school originally included an orphanage run by the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart until 1950. In 1951, the orphanage closed and the Sisters focused their efforts on an elementary school known as Sacred Heart Villa. In 1977, it became an independent private school and Seattle’s only Catholic independent preschool through eighthgrade school. Villa Academy’s Chapel was constructed in the mid- 1920’s and underwent extensive restoration in 1991. Today, the chapel is rented for weddings and used by students. www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Villa_Academy
