The Rowdy & The Respectable: A Walking History of Georgetown

Join MOHAI and the Pacific Northwest Historians Guild for a series of social history walking tours around Seattle this summer. This tour, led by Miriam Roskin, starts and ends at the east side of Oxbow Park and explores the colorful past and vibrant present of one of Seattle’s oldest and most intriguing neighborhoods. Since 1851, when the Collins party’s arrival upended centuries of Duwamish tradition along a lazy oxbow river, Georgetown’s social history has been characterized by an almost constant tension between the rowdy and the respectable — evident even today in Georgetown’s residential and commercial streets and sights.
