Words, Writers & Southwest Stories: Town of Alki: Great Hopes & Fountainhead of Tears @ Southwest Library
Feb 13 @ 6:00 pm

At the Southwest Branch library,Town of Alki: Great Hopes & Fountainhead of Tears, a history of the former town of Alki, will be presented by local historian, Phillip Hoffman, who resides in West Seattle’s Alki neighborhood. The Town of Alki no longer exists. In its place rests remnants of summer beach cottages, 1950’s and 60’s styled houses and, increasingly, a collection of waterfront multi-million dollar homes, condominiums, and penthouses. Mr. Hoffman will relate the story of how the Town of Alki came about and why it failed –largely because the founders did not recognize the natural and physical limitations of their location.

This free event by “Words, Writers & SouthWest Stories,” a historically-based speaker series of the Southwest Seattle Historical Society is co-hosted by the Seattle Public Library and will take place Thursday, February 13th at 6 PM at the Southwest Branch of the Seattle Public Library, 9010 35th Ave. SW in West Seattle.

Mr. Hoffman holds a Masters of Urban Planning degree and is the retired director of the University of Washington Office of Institutional Studies. Upon his retirement, he established the Alki History Project. The Project’s mission is to document, explore, and interpret the history of Seattle’s founding neighborhood.

‘Words, Writers & SouthWest Stories’ presentations are scheduled for the second Thursday of each month at 6 PM at the Southwest Branch of the Seattle Public Library. Next month on March 12th, Susanna Ryan will present her new, entertaining book, Seattle Walk Report.

For videos on these and other speakers’ presentations, check out “Events” at www.loghousemuseum.org. This newly re-named series is open to hosting any speaker addressing historical issues relating to the Puget Sound/Duwamish Peninsula and/or the general public. Additional information on future presentations can be obtained by contacting Dora-Faye Hendricks, Chair, ‘Words, Writers & SouthWest Stories’ by phone at 206-290-8315 or e-mailing Dora-Faye@comcast.net .
