Overview


Seattle's Pioneer Square--home of "Underground Seattle," the great 1889 fire, and once the provisioner of supplies for gold seekers during the Klondike gold rush--is today a destination for millions of locals and visitors each year. This was the homeland of Chief Sealth's Duwamish and Suquamish tribes prior to the arrival of new settlers in the 1850s, though the area's landscape and shoreline are drastically different today. Doc Maynard, Arthur Denny, and Henry Yesler, among others, were catalysts who created much of the social, economic, and environmental change that established Seattle as the largest city in the region. Pioneer Square, located on the shores of Puget Sound's Elliott Bay, is Seattle's oldest neighborhood.

Meet the Author


In his foreword, former Seattle mayor Wes Uhlman (1969-1977) writes about establishing Pioneer Square as one of the first, and largest, National Historic Preservation Districts in the country. Author Joy Keniston-Longrie's family arrived in Seattle in 1884. Graduate of the University of Washington and author of Arcadia Publishing's Images of America: Woodbrook Hunt Club, Keniston-Longrie combined her passion for history and the changing environment to create this pictorial history of Pioneer Square. Photographs were contributed from a variety of collections, including the Museum of History and Industry, Seattle Public Library, University of Washington Special Collections, Seattle Municipal Archives, and the Washington State Historical Society.
