The Friends of Georgetown History is a community group of friendly and talented neighbors dedicated to celebrating the neighborhood of Georgetown’s many contributions to the legend of Seattle’s early years.
One project, the Panel Project, included producing eight large panels celebrating the history of Georgetown that exhibited on a rotating basis at neighborhood retailer’s like All City Coffee and Jules Maes Saloon. This project was funded by a City of Seattle Department of Neighborhoods Small and Simple Grant. The collection of photographs included in this research compilation belong to the following collections: Friends of Georgetown History, Museum of History and Industry, University of Washington, and the Seattle Public School Archives.
Anyone interested in the rich, diverse, and often quirky, history of King County’s first settlement is encouraged to join us at monthly meetings and potluck. All members participate in the annual Georgetown Haunted History Tour each October and other community events throughout the year.
