“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?”

For more information on this exhibit, call the Northeast Branch at 206-684-7539.
