Historic Seattle's First Hill Neighborhood Tour
With the most recent tour taking place last Thursday, Historic Seattle will be guiding tourgoers through the First Hill neighborhood once again on August 16th. The tour is guided by Historic Seattle Program Director, Larry Kreisman and includes informative stops at many of Seattle's most historical and architecturally marvelous clubs, churches, and hotels.
After beginning at the Frye Art Museum, one of the first stops on the tour is St. James Cathedral.
A tour of First Hill wouldn't be complete without a stop at the classic Sorrento Hotel. Tour-goers are offered happy hour pricing at the hotel after the tour.
The historic Dearborn house, built in 1907 for Henry Dearborn, is now home to the Historic Seattle organization's offices
