Neighborhood Inventories

These inventories, completed in 1976, provide an overview of Seattle neighborhoods. Each inventory includes photographs and brief descriptions of common building types, significant buildings, and urban design elements, each keyed to the map. Inventories also include a general description of the neighborhood and concise history. Although they are only current through the mid 1970s, these inventories provide many details not found on any other city map.

Neighborhood inventories are available for download as PDFs. Hard copies may be purchased for $5 each at Historic Seattle. Call (206) 622-6952 or email to confirm availability.
