Northeast Seattle Neighborhoods' History Exhibit at the Northeast Branch Library

The Northeast Branch (6801 35th Avenue NE) of The Seattle Public Library is featuring a display on neighborhood history all this month, in honor of Neighborhood Appreciation Day that took place last Saturday.

The exhibit features historic photos, maps and articles about the development of the Wedgwood, View Ridge, Laurelhurst, Meadowbrook and Ravenna neighborhoods.

The information about the exhibit also says: "Did you know that Northeast Seattle was once the home of a ghost town, a lumber mill, a college (not the University of Washington!), an airport, a railroad, a mosquito fleet, a saint, a dairy farm and the city's first p-patch?"

The exhibit is free and open to the public. For more information, call the Northeast Branch at 206-684-7539.
