About Forest Ledge

The historic Forest Ledge mansion sits on nearly four acres in Seahurst above Puget Sound facing Vashon Island. Built by Hollister Sprague – Boeing’s first lawyer – this incredible home features the largest private pipe organ west of the Mississippi. The ballroom (where the fundraiser will be held) features large arched wooden beams, high vaulted ceilings, and three pipe organ chambers. The ballroom is also fully equipped as a theater where private movies have previously been shown to guests.
