*Seattle Architecture Foundation: Federal Ave. Walking Tour

June 1 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

The homes reflect the changing tastes, lifestyles, and times just before and after World War I. Stroll Federal Avenue and learn about these stately monuments to early 20th Century prosperity. On this tour you’ll see a variety of classic architectural styles from notable architects of the day, including Carl F. Gould, Bebb & Mendel, & Joseph S. Coté and Andrew Willatsen.
