Uncovering the History of Seattle’s Central Waterfront

Uncovering the History of Seattle’s Central Waterfront




The central Seattle waterfront has layers of stories, many of them hidden from view like the beach that once welcomed Coast Salish canoes. Join HistoryLink historian Jennifer Ott on a one-mile walking tour across time to explore the piers and people, ships and railroads, and ever-evolving landscape of the waterfront.

This walking tour starts at Occidental Park, makes its way along the waterfront, and finishes at Pier 62. See Eventbrite ticketing for more details. Recommended age: 4 years and older.  Group size is limited, register on Eventbrite to reserve free tickets. The entire session will be held outdoors.

Tours run every first Thursday of the month through August.
