Historic Seattle, the Washington Trust for Historic Preservation, the Frye Museum, and the Sorrento Hotel are pleased to offer a guided tour of historic First Hill. The neighborhood was the location of private clubs, important religious institutions, and swank hotels. It was also the city’s premier residential enclave from the 1890s through the first decades of the 1900s—home to mayors, judges, industrialists, timber barons, and art collectors. The tour includes interiors of The Frye Museum, St. James Cathedral, Dearborn House, Stimson-Green Mansion, Piedmont Hotel (now Tuscany Apartments), and the Sorrento Hotel, providing insights into a century of architecture and interior design, as well as a lively look at the life and times of First Hill at the turn of the 20th century.
Guided tours conclude in the Fireside Lounge of the Sorrento Hotel where participants enjoy happy hour prices on appetizers and drinks.
