Republishing The hill with a future!



Since it was first published in 2001, The Hill With a Future: Seattle’s Capitol Hill 1900-1946 has been the only book devoted exclusively to the history of Seattle’s Capitol Hill. For years this valuable resource has been out of print and increasingly difficult to access, and so the Capitol Hill Historical Society has worked to re-publish it.

And thanks in part to funding from 4Culture, The Second Edition of The Hill With A Future is now available for presale and will start shipping in early December!
