Project documenting the rich history of Southeast Seattle now complete

Seattle’s Historic Preservation Program recently completed a three-year project to document the rich history of Southeast Seattle. Through a series of posters, essays, and reports prepared by community historians, the project focuses on the era since World War II and looks at the historical roots of the ethnic diversity for which Southeast Seattle is known today. The project combines traditional historic preservation methods, like survey and inventory of historic sites, with community-based research to identify the people, places, events, and policies that shared the post-World War II era in this part of the city.
