In 1941, Seattle’s streetcar tracks were torn up and sold for scrap. Now we’re tunneling under Capitol Hill and laying new tracks on Broadway. What has changed? Join in a discussion about the past and present of Seattle’s street railways.
Join us on the third Thursday of the month at Roy Street Coffee on Capitol Hill for lively a discussion about history. Most History Cafés are recorded by KCTS 9 and are available to watch online. Each History Café features a different topic, and invites history enthusiasts to come together and share what you know. Grab a cup of coffee -- or glass of wine -- and enjoy learning about the past! Seating at History Café is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Optional RSVP at Meetup.
This event series is brought to you by MOHAI, The Seattle Public Library, HistoryLink.org, Roy Street Coffee and KCTS 9.
