Seattle, WA Tidbits

There are two rugged mountain ranges west of Seattle and east of Seattle. The Cascades are to the east and the Olympics to the west. Seattle is located between the fresh waters of Lake Washington and the salt waters of Puget Sound, on a narrow strip of land.This community is built around water and on hills. The mild marine climate encourages abundant natural resources and prolific vegetation.

In 1851, early pioneers arrived in what is currently known as Seattle they first named New York.. However, soon they relocated a short distance across Elliott Bay to what is currently known as the historic Pioneer Square district, primarily because there was a protected deep water harbor available. Soon thereafter, this community came to be known as Seattle, in honor of an Indian named Sealth, who was a leader of the Duwamish Indian tribe, and had befriended the pioneers. The population of the community was over 200 people.

In spite of the fact that coal was discovered close to Lake Washington, life was rather quiet in Seattle during the 1870's and some of that coal made its way to San Francisco. Also during the early 1870's the Northern Pacific Railroad Company announced that the western terminus of its transcontinental railroad would be at Tacoma, nearly 40 miles south of Seattle. Shortly after its completion in 1883, Seattle forced a connection with the Northern Pacific Railroad, much to the dismay of the local leaders'. The population of Seattle increased dramatically during 1883. The main industries were coal and lumber. However, the community continued to experience population growth and economic expansion largely as the result of other industries, such as shopping, shipbuilding, wholesale trade, and fishing. It is estimated that Seattle was gaining 100 new residents every month during the early part of 1889. Early that year there were 500 buildings being built. The majority of these buildings were constructed of wood. In the middle of 1889, a devastating fire slowed the explosive growth, but didn't stop it. This fire destroyed buildings on 116 acres in the heart of the business district. Fortunently, nobody died in the fire, however, the damage to much property cost millions of dollars. The fire didn't dampen the enthusiasm for Seattle. It actually offered the opportunity for extensive municipal improvements, including a municipal water works, reconstructed wharves, a professional fire department, and regraded and widened regraded streets. The new construction in the burned district was required to be of steel or brick, and it was by choice on a more imposing and grander scale.

In spite of the Great Northern transcontinental Railroad, which arrived in 1893, but the 1890's weren't very prosperous. A business depression that was nationwide didn't spare Seattle. However, the discovery of gold in 1897 in Alaska and in the Yukon Territory of Canada close to the Klondike River, once again made Seattle an immediate booming community. The community had already established shipping lines and became the primary outfitting location for prospectors and the community exploited its closeness to the Klondike. The link eventually was so strong that Alaska was long considered to be the personal property of the residents of Seattle as well as the community of Seattle.

Seattle experienced extensive growth in the early 1900's, largely as the result of advertising. Two additional transcontinental railroads, the Milwaukee Road Systems and the Union Pacific arrived in Seattle and reinforced the position in the community as a shipping and trading center, especially with the North Pacific and with Asia. In order to announce its achievements, in 1909, Seattle sponsored an International Fair. The population of Seattle was nearly 240,000 people. In 1914, the 42 story L.C. Smith building was completed.

The shipbuilding industry in the community was transformed by WW I. In early 1919, in order to maintain their high wartime wages, workers struck the shipyards, which brought national attention to Seattle. Soon, the event resulted in the longest such strike in American history. The strike's success fueled postwar fear by Americans about socialists and radical, although it lacked a cogent objective. However, the postwar effects were an economic downturn that remained until the middle 1950's.

There was another burst of optimism in the late 1950's when Boeing introduced the 707 commercial jet airliner successfully. Seattle was the sponsor of the futuristic Century Exposition in 1962 known as the world's fair. This fair left the community with a permanent legacy in the Seattle Center and its complex of the Space needle, the Monorail, the Pacific Science Center, and entertainment, sports, and performance, sports, and entertainment halls.

The population of the community has remained at about 500,000 people and remained somewhat stable since Century 21. Although there was significant growth in the suburban regions. In the early 1970's, the Boeing Company suffered a slump that considerably depressed the local economy. The area's economy has subsequently been diversified and steadied . Boeing and Weyerhaeuser, as well as high-tech companies such as Microsoft have been a large part of that development. Seattle has also enjoyed an expanded sea and air trade with the North Pacific, Alaska, and Asia.

Seattle is very proud of its downtown art museum, several live theaters, and cultural and arts institutions. The community is also proud of its collegiate and professional sports, as well as its parks. There is the beauty of its surroundings, in addition to Pike Place market and Pioneer Square. Seattle wants great growth but demands that somehow the community remains untouched.
