[graphic] Seattle: A National Register of Historic Places Travel Itinerary
For a century and a half, Seattle has welcomed people to the Pacific Northwest. Some remained only briefly: lumberjacks preparing to attack the region's rich forests, Klondikers trekking north to search for gold, sailors passing through a bustling port. Yet many of those who stopped on the shores of Puget Sound chose to stay. They have taken advantage of the area's natural resources, traded across the country and around the world, manufactured products ranging from traditional tools to cutting-edge computers, and built a community that now numbers over 500,000.

Seattle: A National Register of Historic Places Travel Itinerary explores that history and shows how it continues to shape the city's life today. It uses residential, commercial, industrial, and religious locations to create a tour--usable on-line or while traveling through the city--that documents how past and present come together. The itinerary features 37 properties, all of which are listed in the National Park Service's National Register of Historic Places, America's official list of places important in our history and worthy of preservation. Through maps, descriptions, and photographs of places both famous and little-known, this guide illustrates why Seattle continues to draw people to the Pacific Northwest. Visitors may be interested in Historic Hotels of America, a program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, located in the vicinity of this itinerary.
