Description

The challenge of getting Newcastle coal to Elliott Bay inspired early Seattleites to envision a canal connecting Lake Washington to Puget Sound but it would take 63 years for the vision to become reality. Join us to hear Jennifer Ott, Ott, co-author with David B. Williams of Waterway: The Story of Seattle's Locks and Ship Canal, share some of the stories they uncovered in their research about the decades of false starts, political shenanigans, and far-reaching social, economic, and environmental impacts of the canal's construction and operation.

In partnership with 4Culture and the Newcastle Historical Society.
