Georgetown

Settled in 1851, Georgetown is Seattle’s oldest continually settled neighborhood. Incorporated as the City of Georgetown from 1904 to 1910, it is now home to a mix of artists, gardeners, families, and retail and industrial businesses. Most homes in Georgetown-bungalows, Victorians, ramblers, and duplexes were built before 1939. A revitalized retail core along Airport Way offers stores, bars, coffee shops, and unique and funky restaurants. Each year on the second Sunday in July residents open their gardens and artists open their studios for the Georgetown Garden Walk. An Artwalk is also held the second Saturday of each month. The restored, historic Hat n’ Boots, Seattle’s last remaining example of vernacular architecture, are located in Oxbow Park. Other notables include the restored Georgetown City Hall, the landmark 1906 Power Planet, the Museum of flight, and the circa 1900 Rainier Brewery building (now an official Seattle landmark).
