Our members meetings offer the opportunity to learn about programs and projects of interest taking place in our community and through the auspices of Historic Seattle. These events are held at sites of historic or architectural interest, and a short quarterly business meeting precedes the program.
Join us for a short meeting and informal tours of Dearborn House, the 1907 Classical Revival residence that has been Historic Seattle’s headquarters since 1997. Henry Dearborn made his fortune by the sale in 1903 of the tide flat lands he and his brothers had purchased in the 1880s. When the railway purchased them for the rail stations, he retired and took his daughter to Europe. On his return, they moved into a brand new home on fashionable First Hill. While it has been adapted to office use since 1953, Historic Seattle has made many improvements that have removed many of the alterations under the ownership of an ophthalmologist and a cosmetic surgeon. Light refreshments inside and on the lawn, weather permitting.
