{seattle} square for pioneers

August 3, 2015

Seattle’s Pioneer Square is the heart of the city’s historic district. Pioneer Square is known as the “birthplace of Seattle” since it claims to be the city’s first neighborhood. According to its website, the area is known for its Renaissance Revival style architecture, First Thursday art walks, night life, delicious lunch spots, and quirky boutiques. My favorite part though is the fact that there are picnic tables and chairs so that people can gather and share a meal or story. The thick vines climbing the area’s buildings also accentuate the area’s greenness. Even the various totem poles acknowledge the rich Native American cultures in the Washington area. What a great historical piece of Seattle!

  1. Thank you for the great photos. The totem poles, I had forgotten about the other ones located in various places in the Pioneer Square district and you got a good photo. They are a bit of a giggle because no Washington tribes did these, they are from Alaska but we consider Alaska a suburb of Seattle, anyway, so it’s all good!
