2016 Historic Seattle Events

Historic Seattle is pleased to announce its educational programming for 2016! We have developed a diverse lineup including lectures, tours, workshops, and informal advocacy-focused events that provide a broader understanding and appreciation of our built environment and places that matter. Learn more in our 2016 program brochure or on our website.

2016 Programming Highlights:

  • Digging Deeper is a multi-session program introducing participants to primary research materials in Seattle’s many archives
  • Quarterly members meetings held at significant historic sites often closed to the public
  • In-town and out-of-town tours including First Hill and Montlake neighborhoods, University District churches, Good Shepherd Center gardens, Georgetown Steam Plant, and Vashon and Whidbey Islands
  • Lectures and workshops on architecture, fine and decorative arts, and advocacy training
  • 8th Annual Preservation Awards event at our newly-refurbished Washington Hall.

We will be kicking things off with our Annual Members Meeting at the German House on January 26th, which includes a short business meeting followed by a presentation, Gold Dust Thief, by Luci Baker Johnson. Luci will share how George Edward Adams, Seattle Assay Office Clerk, skimmed a Klondike Fortune in gold (dust) during the years 1899-1905.
