What are the places, structures, and monuments that define our city, both to those of us who live here and those that have never been? From the Space Needle to the Fremont Troll, Seattle has its share of iconic sites. Find out how these sites came to be and how they've come to represent Seattle. This month's History Cafe will feature a mix of group conversation and presentation from MOHAI educator Julia Swan.
Join us on the 3rd Thursday of the month at Roy Street Coffee on Capitol Hill for lively a discussion about history. Each cafe features a different topic, and invites history enthusiasts to come together and share what you know. Grab a cup of coffee - or glass of wine - and enjoy learning about the past!
This event series is brought to you by MOHAI, KCTS 9, The Seattle Public Library, HistoryLink.org, and Roy Street Coffee.
RSVPs: Seating at History Cafe is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Your RSVP gives us an idea of how many people are coming, but does not guarantee you a seat, so we encourage you to arrive at least 15 minutes early. If an event is full on Meetup, you may still come.
Parking: Roy Street Coffee & Tea has a parking garage that offers limited free parking to café customers. If that lot is full, metered and unmetered street parking can be found nearby, or we recommend parking in lots at any of the following locations: NE corner of Broadway and Mercer ($8 evenings), Mercer between Harvard and Broadway ($6-9 evenings), Thomas between Harvard and Broadway ($6 evenings).
