Central District Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This valley neighborhood, with no scenic views, was one of the few sections of Seattle where African Americans could own homes before the 1950s. It’s still the spiritual center of the city’s black community, even after the current real estate boom displaced many longtime residents in favor of more upscale arrivistes.

You’ll see more humbly sized, albeit handsomely preserved (in many cases), homes than in some of this book’s other walks. The Central District also has its share of big institutional structures, including a theater in a former Jewish temple, another theater in a former Scandinavian community center, and a stoic brick hospital."
