Harvard Belmont District: The Rich Life on Capitol Hill
Sat, Jan 13, 2024 from 10am - 12pm
Have your cake and gossip too as we visit Seattle’s only residential Landmark District featuring a wealth of upscale, early 20th century architecture. Harvard/Belmont is a veritable portfolio of the finest designers of the day: Charles Platt of New York and Hornblower and Marshall of Washington, D.C., as well as prominent area architects, including John Graham, Sr., Charles Bebb and Carl Gould, Kirtland Cutter, Andrew Willatsen, Arthur Loveless, Freed Anhalt, and A. H. Albertson. They provided innovative plans, a high level of craftsmanship and beautifully landscaped courtyards, which gives this neighborhood its distinctive character.
This tour begins on Capitol Hill, at the entrance to the circular driveway at the Merrill Court Townhouses, 901 Harvard Ave. East.
