Firland Sanatorium Recognized on the Washington Heritage Register of Historic Places


We’ve always known we work at a place with a deep and strongly rooted history, and now our workspace is being recognized for it.

The Governor’s Advisor Council on Historic Preservation and the Washington State Department of Archeology & Historic Preservation have listed Firland Sanatorium, currently the Martin Center and King’s Schools on the CRISTA Ministries campus, on the Washington Heritage Register of Historic Places. This honor recognizes building in the state of Washington that represent historical significance and maintain architectural integrity.

Kyle Roquet, Vice President of Facilities, was instrumental in helping Firland Sanatorium make it on the Register. “We are proud of the buildings and grateful to be stewards of their history, not only as Firland Sanatorium, but as King’s Garden and CRISTA Ministries as well!” said Roquet.

The Martin Center serves as headquarters for CRISTA Ministries, Christian Veterinary Mission, World Concern and King’s Schools Administration while King’s Schools buildings house students and teachers who educate students each day to serve God for his glory; to this end, we are grateful to have our Holy Ground recognized in such a significant way by the State of Washington.
