From the Department of Neighborhoods Historic Preservation Program:
Over the past two years, Southeast Seattle’s rich cultural heritage has been documented through a series of posters, essays and reports prepared by community historians. The Southeast Seattle Community History Project focuses on the area south of I-90 and east of I-5, including the neighborhoods of Beacon Hill, Mount Baker, Rainier Valley, Seward Park and Rainier Beach. These neighborhoods are home to several City of Seattle Landmarks, but much of the community’s history has not previously been documented. The Seattle Historic Preservation Program invites you to explore our city’s history, and learn about the people and places that make it unique.
For more information on the Southeast Seattle Community History Project, go to the Department of Neighborhoods website.
