No matter how else the waterfront has been used, it has always been a place where people play. Join us at Waterfront Space at 1400 Western Ave. on Thursday, March 22, 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. for a presentation on the history of recreation and amusement on the Seattle waterfront led by Jennifer Ott, Assistant Director of HistoryLink. The program will begin around 6 p.m.
HistoryLink.org is a free online encyclopedia of Washington state and local history, and the first and largest encyclopedia of community history created expressly for the Internet.
Throughout the spring, Friends of Waterfront Seattle hosts The Source series, a sequence of community open house events celebrating our waterfront as a source of heritage, creative inspiration, and appreciation for the natural world. This series also celebrates Waterfront Space, the project showroom for Waterfront Seattle, a source for project information and community engagement.
All evening events will include snacks and refreshments, and a brief program presenting new perspectives on our waterfront’s history, art, and ecology. Thank you to our series sponsor, The Pike Brewing Company.
