Preceding Boeing and Microsoft was coal, the most significant source of prosperity for Seattle and the surrounding region during the nineteenth century. Carrying that coal from the mines at Newcastle to the harbor at Seattle was the Seattle Coal & Transportation Company, Puget Sound's first railroad. Come hear about the latest findings on the forgotten but vital piece of Pacific Northwest history.
