Wedgwood history includes lumber mill, airport, more

Posted by Mike on February 19th, 2013

“Did you know that Northeast Seattle was once the home of a ghost town, a lumber mill, a college (not the University of Washington!), an airport, a railroad, a mosquito fleet, a saint, a dairy farm and the city’s first p-patch?”

That’s what The Seattle Library has to say about an exhibit currently showing at its Northeast branch. Through the end of the month you can view historic photos, maps and articles about the development of Wedgwood, View Ridge, Laurelhurst, Meadowbrook and Ravenna.

The exhibit is on loan from Valarie Bunn, who runs the blog Wedgwood in Seattle History.

For more information on this exhibit, call the Northeast Branch at 206-684-7539.
