Learn the historical details leading to the birth of Seattle as it is knows today, and the decision to raise the city streets out of the swampy grounds. See where retaining walls were added alongside the streets and filled to make new roads several feet above where they originally stood.

Interesting but not enough time was permitted to look around and study the numerous photos that were hanging. Friendly guide but too much time spent on things that could have been left out. Very rushed tour.
