3rd Annual Holiday Party
Time & Location
About the Event
UPDATE: We had to move! Sadly the elevator at the Capitol Building Apartments is out of service and will not be repaired prior to the holiday party. And since we don't want to force everyone to hike up six flights of stairs, we are relocating. We apologize for any confusion or inconvenience this may cause.
Join your fellow neighborhood history lovers at the home of CHHS treasurer Grace Harvey as we celebrate the republication of The Hill With A Future - Seattle's Capitol Hill 1900-1946 and our most successful year yet over an evening of lively conversation, delicious holiday-themed cocktails & treats, and a history presentation titled:
Wind of Change: A photo at the edge and beginning of Capitol Hill
In this presentation, Rob Ketcherside and Tom Heuser will be giving additional historical background on a rare photograph of the Harding Allan home at 1421 E Valley St including a rare sight of cows grazing in the foreground and a windmill in the distance. This photo was originally featured in Jackie Williams' book, The Hill With A Future and was rephotographed for the December 5th (online) 8th (print) edition of the Seattle Times Now and Then Column by Clay Eals and Jean Sherrard.
Doors open at 7:00 Presentation starts at 7:30.
No cover. RSVP Required. $10 suggested donation. Food and drink are also welcome, but not required. Copies of the recently republished Hill With A Future will also be available for purchase.
To access the building, select "Harvey" on the call box. After getting buzzed in, take the elevator up to the second floor and head to unit #203. If you have any trouble gaining access to the building do not hesitate to call or text Tom Heuser directly at 206-375-8811.
