Here are preliminary maps and lists of racial restrictive covenants for Bellingham and skagit County. Combing through county property records we have uncovered deeds and other documents containing restrictions that apply to more than 1,400 properties. Our work is not finished, so this is meant to be suggestive, not definitive. Racial restrictions were imposed by many developers and neighborhood associations in the decades when they were legal prior to 1968. They remain part of property records today. The links below lead to three pages featuring different kinds of maps, lists, and information that show the prevalence of restrictive covenants. We will be adding additional information in the months ahead.
