This event has passed.

Columbia City, once viewed as neglected, is now considered one of Seattle’s most dynamic, diverse, and desirable neighborhoods. Begun as a mill town in the late 19th century along the electric rail line to Renton, the neighborhood gradually fell into disrepair during the late 20th century. Columbia City then began a grassroots revitalization 20 years ago. Buildings once vacant and derelict have been restored to turn-of-the century beauty. Coffee shops, restaurants, galleries, and regular events like the Farmer’s Market have made the neighborhood a destination for Seattle residents. On this tour, participants will see examples of worker’s cottages from the beginning of the 20th century as well of the addition of mixed-use projects as current as today. The tour will also examine the historic business district and its revitalization.

Tour Start: starts at the Columbia City Link Transit Station and continues eastward on South Edmunds Street toward the Columbia City business district.
