Meet the Author


Located in an authentically restored 1904 log building, the "Birthplace of Seattle" Log House Museum is a place to discover and celebrate the history of the Duwamish Peninsula and the birthplace of Seattle. From the Duwamish River on the east, to Puget Sound on the west, from the former site of Luna Park at Duwamish Head on the north, down through White Center, the museum shares the history of a diverse and vibrant community. Originally the carriage house of the Fir Lodge estate, this award-winning public facility and community landmark is a project of the Southwest Seattle Historical Society.
