WEST SEATTLE HISTORY: Snag a spot on an Alki walking tour this summer

(WSB file photo)

The home of West Seattle’s history is also part of West Seattle history, so the Log House Museum is among the stops on a new Alki walking tour that the organization headquartered there, the Southwest Seattle Historical Society, is offering this summer. You have four options! Here’s the announcement, with the registration links for the by-donation, pay-what-you-can tours:

This summer, join the Southwest Seattle Historical Society for walking tours of Alki exploring local history. Learn about the peoples who have lived here and how settlement by various groups and individuals has left its mark on Alki. Visit historic and cultural sites in the area and discuss how our understanding of the area and its people continues to evolve.

Tours include stops at the Log House Museum, Fir Lodge/Alki Homestead, historic sites and monuments at Alki Beach, and Doc Maynard’s home in West Seattle.

Tours are offered rain or shine and include about one mile of walking with multiple stops. The tour is ADA accessible.

All tours begin and end at the Log House Museum at 3003 61st Ave SW.

    For all four links I got “the requested form is no longer available” when I clicked though. Did it sell out, or is the link broken?

      They might have sold out – the SWSHS webpage for the tours (a general page, with all four links) said the two later tours were down to 1 space left each. I’ll check with Elizabeth at SWSHS so we can update this if so. Maybe they’ll schedule more!

    Yup – the previous link is broken because all 4 tours sold out!  *BUT! They added 4 more tours at 1pm the same four days.
