This was by far the second largest annexation to the City of Seattle. Seattle annexed a slightly larger area (16.94 sq. miles) in 1891 that included Magnolia Bluff to Lake Union to Green Lake.
West Seattle boundaries were: on the south by SW Roxbury Street, east by 1st Avenue S and north and west by Elliott Bay and Puget Sound. In October 1907 the Seattle City Council renamed the streets of West Seattle.
