Seattle at 150: Stories of the City through 150 Objects from the Seattle Municipal Archives


The Staff of HistoryLink


The Seattle Municipal Archive’s rich trove of documents, maps, photographs, and ephemera preserve the texture, color, and voices of our city. Now, in Seattle at 150, the stories and people, dialogue and debate, conflict and vision of an ever growing and changing city spread across the pages for us to see. The collection’s objects illustrate how the city’s psyche and its physical and social landscape—its aspirations—are shaped. The 150-year journey comes to life through the steady push and pull of community organizers, civic leaders, and everyday citizens, revealing the remarkable spirit of this place we call home.
