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, you will see examples of worker’s cottages from the beginning of the 20th century, current mixed-use projects and examine the historic business district and its revitalization.

This tour meets at the Columbia City Link Transit Station and continues eastward on South Edmunds Street toward the Columbia City business district.
