Madrona is a neighborhood of transitions.  What started as a beachside playground for Seattleites became one of its first “streetcar suburbs.”  Its hilltop geography lent itself to grand, lake-view Queen Anne, Dutch Colonial, and Tudor residences. Although gentrification and redlining threatened the neighborhood culture, strong organizations, involved churches, and a sense of community pulled Madrona through tense times.  See today's Madrona through the lens of its fascinating history. On this tour you’ll discover Queen Anne, Colonial and Craftsman style homes designed by notable architects including Ellsworth Storey and Joseph Coté.

This tour meets at the stair entrance to the Madrona Playfield & Shelter House, 3211 E Spring St, Seattle, WA 98122 (corner of 34th and Spring).
