The City of Seattle was founded in 1851 by Denny Party, however it should be noted Luther Collins, Henry Van Asselt and the Mapel family were the first settlers in the Seattle area.

Seattle is the 18th largest city in the country.The city is very hilly, in past years it was hillier yet, as the city expanded, the hills posed great obstacles to its growth.

In the late 19th century many massive mounds of earth were washed away with high pressure water. In 1962 the Space Needle was constructed, thus creating Seattle’smost important landmark.

The name Seattle was given to the city in 1851 to honor Native American Chief Si’ahl “Seattle” of the local Duwamish and Suquamish tribes.
