About the event
Jeff McCord has been with Nickel Bros House Moving Ltd. since 2006, helping to rescue well over 120 homes during his tenure. Along with Nickel Bros’ operations and administration teams, Jeff has helped save these homes from demolition, finding new recipients who give them long new lives after being moved by barge to their waterfront or inland properties. He has long been passionate about architecture and historic preservation, at one point having served as executive director for the “Southwest Seattle Historical Society,” a non-profit based near his home in West Seattle.
