When Coal Was King in Seattle

Season: 2019
Eps: 4

In the PNW, we are concerned about climate change and our dependence on fossil fuels – especially coal. But there was a time 100 years ago when coal was king in King County. Coal mines sprang up in Newcastle, Black Diamond, Renton, Issaquah and as far north as Bellingham. Seattle’s emerging commercial harbor shipped millions of tons of coal to the entire West Coast.
