Neighborhood History

We plan to compile a history of the Central Seattle neighborhoods, as a reference and a retelling of our past and present!

There are many factors, movements, people, and places at work to influence our work as a group, as we strive to improve the environment we share. We hope to produce as well-rounded a documentation as possible for our neighborhood, as context for this work and for the way that we residents have lived and experienced our communities and our city.

If you would like to be involved in this effort–if you have stories, information, media, or resources about the area–or if you love writing about history, please contact us! Your insight always has the potential to deepen another neighbor’s knowledge!
