Exhibit at the Northeast Library Branch Features Neighborhood History

In celebration of Neighbor Appreciation Day on Feb. 9, the Northeast Branch of the Seattle Public Library is hosting an exhibit on neighborhood history throughout the month of February.

Did you know that Northeast Seattle was once the home of a ghost town, a lumber mill, a college (not the University of Washington!), an airport, a railroad, a mosquito fleet, a saint, a dairy farm and the city’s first P-patch?

From Feb. 1 – 28, visit the Northeast Branch to discover historic photos, maps and articles about the development of Wedgwood, View Ridge, Laurelhurst, Meadowbrook and Ravenna.

For more information, call the Northeast Branch at 206-684-7539
