Town Hall brings First Hill history alive on 10/3
First Hill’s rich history will come alive at Town Hall Seattle this Friday, October 3rd. Join them for a reception in the Lobby prior to the lecture.
From the event description: “This special event will unveil an installation of Paul Dorpat’s and Jean Sherrard’s photography exhibition “First Hill and Beyond” in Town Hall’s north lobby. Beginning with Henry Yesler and his pals’ initial truck up to First Hill — a fine spot for their crustless cucumber sandwich lunch break — this exhibition and event will give a whirlwind overview of Pacific Northwest history. In an enthusiastic, audience participation-filled event (think, tent revivalism!), learn about local history, get a whiff of sulfur, a touch of elysium, and a taste of Seattle scandals long forgotten. Historian Dorpat has written the popular “Now and Then” column for the Sunday Seattle Times’ Pacific Northwest Magazine since 1982, and Sherrard joined him in 2006.”
Doors open: 6:30 p.m.
