This bibliography on Seattle Neighborhoods was prepared as a community history resource by staff of the former King County Office of Cultural Resources, now 4Culture (King County Cultural Development Authority). It was last revised in June 1999.


King County Landmarks and Heritage Program, King County Office of Cultural Resources
506 Second Avenue, Suite 200, Seattle, WA 98104-2307 (206) 296-7580, 1-800-325-6165 V/TDD


The following bibliography is intended to assist researchers who are interested in Seattle's Neighborhood History locate some of the more accessible sources. The principal focus of this study is on local history and neighborhood heritage resources, rather than on technical topics relating to historic preservation, historical technique, research methodology or public policy issues. It is freely acknowledged that a full-scale bibliography on Seattle history would be of considerable proportions, much beyond the scope of the present work. Several categories are included here for convenient research, including those for geographical quadrants of the city, certain neighborhoods such as the Pike Place Market and Pioneer Square, ethnic heritage, architecture and thematic heritage. Quadrants are defined by the Interstate 5 Freeway north and south and the north line of the Lake Washington Ship Canal and Lake Union east and west. Although this system is somewhat arbitrary, it has been of some utility in organizing the data. In order to keep the project manageable it has not been possible to include all of the oldest Seattle histories, relevant biographies, government documents, or the histories of individual buildings, organizations, churches and institutions, of which there are many. Listings for ethnic groups, architecture and historic themes such as the arts might literally fill volumes of citations, and some work has already been done in certain areas. Many of the books and studies listed here contain their own bibliographic references, which will be found to be the best for particular areas of research. Information about guides to archives, libraries, museums and other repositories is available by contacting the King County Landmarks and Heritage Program at the address given above. Bibliographies for general King County history, County Planning Areas and several historical themes relating to the County are available from the same source.

Papers in this series are maintained in electronic format. They are revised and updated periodically as new information becomes available.
