While we celebrate 150 years of the City of Seattle being incorporated by the Legislative Assembly of Washington Territory,
We honor that this is Duwamish Land.
The Sesquicentennial celebration kicked off October 17 with Mayor Durkan launching a commemorative book, Seattle at 150: Stories of the City Through 150 Objects from the Seattle Municipal Archives, produced in partnership with HistoryLink. A digital version is also available.
Continue the celebration with us! Join us at two upcoming events.
- Archives Fair, celebrating historical resources in the Puget Region, on October 30 at Seattle City Hall in Bertha Knight Landes from 10 AM— 2 PM
We’re excited to continue celebrating the City’s history and the work of its employees throughout the years. The Seattle Municipal Archives staff in the Office of the City Clerk is happy to engage with you on any other ideas you might have for the sesquicentennial.
