The Secrets of Seattle’s Disappearing Hills - On this virtual walk, explore Seattle's most famous land alteration project: the complete removal of a hill in the downtown area. Through a series of illustrations and maps and historic photos, author David B. Williams will virtually cover about 1.5 miles circumnavigating the old hill in the area known as the Denny Regrade, where Amazon's campus is now located. You'll learn about how and why early Seattleites undertook this audacious and ambitious project, which they completed between 1897 and 1930. You'll also see clues in the landscape that allow you to visualize Denny Hill as well as see historic images to better understand the story.
