Messy Redmond Way conversion spills over to side streets

I think this mess is on 168th.  Anderson Park is to the right.  A real estate appraiser Mr. Pope has an office nearby in a 90+ year-old Craftsman house; said Sleep Train was once a Chevron station.

Sleep Train's site was my father Wayne Thompson's Chevron Station until 1991 when he retired.
He passed away in October 2004 and is buried in the Old Redmond Cemetery.

The Chevron Station that was located on this spot belonged to my father, Wayne Thompson.

Alan L. Pope & Associates has its offices in the former Thompson family home, built in 1924 and located at 7990 -170th Ave. NE in Redmond. Our family lived in this craftsman home from 1954 to 1998.

Hi Janet!

Thanks for sharing some of the history of your family! I passed your information onto the President of the Redmond Historical Society. Wow, the house is 93 years old? Do you know it's owners previous to your dad? (1954) Mr. Pope thought the house was previously owned by a doctor and then someone else.

Thanks again for sharing. My number is 425-802-2523 if you want to talk.
