Seattle’s First Hill neighborhood developed as the location of private clubs, important religious institutions and swank hotels. It was also the city’s premier residential enclave from the 1890s through the first decades of the 1900s—home to mayors, judges, industrialists, timber barons, and art collectors.
This popular tour is led by Lawrence Kreisman, editor and lead author of Tradition and Change on Seattle’s First Hill: Propriety, Profanity, Pills, and Preservation, and is co-hosted by the Washington Trust for Historic Preservation. Tour includes several buildings that have been saved because of Historic Seattle’s involvement: the Dearborn House, Stimson-Green Mansion, Bel-Boy Apartments, Heg-Phillips House, and Fire Station No. 25.
Cost: $25 Members / $35 General Public
