There are always new discoveries to make in our city. Historic Seattle continues to offer opportunities to learn about city infrastructure, culture, and industries. This year, visit an important repository of regional history, The Seattle Theatre Group Historic Theatres Library. Visit the Volunteer Park Conservatory that has just turned 100. Have a sneak peek at the extraordinarily complex seismic upgrade and restoration of the public spaces in the King Street Station. Take a walking tour showcasing the large variety of stone in our downtown buildings.
Two walking tours outside of downtown explore the wonderful mix of apartment buildings that reflect population growth and trends in architectural styles and efficiencies on Capitol Hill in the first part of the 20th century. And learn about the history and future plans for the city’s newest designated historic district, the Sand Point Naval Air Station.
