What are the places, structures, and monuments that define our city, both to those of us who live here and those that have never been? From the Space Needle to the Fremont Troll, Seattle has its share of iconic sites. Find out how these sites came to be and how they've come to represent Seattle. This month's History Cafe will feature a mix of group conversation and presentation from MOHAI educator Julia Swan.
 
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.
