History Collective curates conversations and storytelling about the preservation and history of Seattle neighborhoods from community members, artists, historians, business owners, and residents.
Historic Seattle is pleased to present the next History Collective, in partnership with HistoryLink, on Thursday, February 25, 2021! The conversation will accompany HistoryLink’s Walking Tour of Seattle’s Central District neighborhood.
