Madrona: Friends & Family Tour
Sat, Oct 24 from 10am - 12pm
Friends & Family Tour
How it works:
In the next couple months we're offering a limited number of heavily-discounted, mini-tours on pre-selected dates. Friends & Family tours must be booked and paid for by one individual, and a maximum of 5 masked & healthy individuals are permitted to attend. Our guides will also wear masks and will use personal microphones to avoid crowding. All tours must be booked/confirmed within 2 weeks of the tour date.
Madrona is a neighborhood of transitions. What started as a beachside playground for Seattleites became one of its first “streetcar suburbs.” Its hilltop geography lent itself to grand, lake-view Queen Anne, Dutch Colonial, and Tudor residences. Although gentrification and redlining threatened the neighborhood culture, strong organizations, involved churches, and a sense of community pulled Madrona through tense times. See today's Madrona through the lens of its fascinating history. On this tour you’ll discover Queen Anne, Colonial and Craftsman style homes designed by notable architects including Ellsworth Storey and Joseph Coté.
Tour Start: Madrona Playfield & Shelter House (corner of 34th & Spring) Street parking available
