Seattle History

I love Seattle history because it’s so compact.  In 1850 there were no white people here; in 1851, there were.  So if we discount the 12,000 years this area was inhabited by Native Americans (I say that tongue-in-cheek, being a card-carrying Tlingit Indian, myself), and the millennia it was inhabited by trees, we can say the “modern” history of Seattle began a bit over 160 years ago.
