Overview

Seattle's South Park, Washington (Images of America Series) by Amanda Zahler, Gary Thomsen, Anna Marti


Situated on the Duwamish River, South Park has a rich tradition of farming and industry. It was along these banks that the Duwamish tribe set up fishing camps and grew crops, a practice that continued with generations of farmers who were drawn to this fertile land. Seattle's Pike Place Market got its start in 1907 when South Park farmers, needing an outlet for their crops, set up the now famous open-air market. With the first land claim in 1851, South Park became home to some of Seattle's original settlers. Today its diverse history has made it one of the few Seattle neighborhoods to be divided into both commercial and residential land zones.

About the Author


Known for award-winning documentaries that focus on distinct communities throughout Seattle, Chief Sealth High School's sports and events marketing class began working with South Park residents to bring the community's unique past to life. Led by student Amanda Zahler, resident Anna Marti, and Sealth teacher Gary Thomsen, the class has compiled a pictorial history of one of the most diverse districts in Seattle. Within these pages are rare vintage images gathered from historical societies within Seattle and the personal collections of South Park residents.
