Historic-Seattle-book-jacket-e1410901171290Seattle’s First Hill neighborhood has a long, unique — and surprising — history. In celebration of Historic Seattle’s 40th Anniversary, the beautifully-illustrated Tradition and Change on Seattle’s First Hill: Propriety, Profanity, Pills, and Preservation is being released. Lawrence Kreisman, Historic Seattle Program Director and the book’s editor, will introduce this one-of-a-kind project, three years in the making. Paul Dorpat, author of the prologue, will share images of the neighborhood throughout the past 150 years. Both educational and entertaining, their historical anecdotes will teach area residents, employees, and visitors the significance of this central neighborhood and why it needs to be preserved. Chapter authors Dotty DeCoster, Jacqueline Williams, Dennis Andersen, Luci J. Baker Johnson, and Brooke Best will also be present to answer questions about the “moving identity” of this prominent location. Books will be available for purchase and book-signing.

To pre-purchase a copy of Seattle’s First Hill, please call Historic Seattle at (206) 622-6952, ext. 221 or send email to brookeb@historicseattle.org.
