Friends of Georgetown History

6206 Carleton Avenue South, Seattle, WA 98108

The Friends of Georgetown History formed in 2004 with projects including the restoration of the iconic Hat n’ Boots at Oxbow Park, the Georgetown Haunted History Tour, the Celebrating Georgetown traveling exhibit, and the Historic Site Plaque Project.  The vision is to bring history to life by lifting it from the text books and making it more accessible to the community.

The Friends of Georgetown History hosts several events throughout the year such as the Honk Fest West in June, The Georgetown Garden Walk in July, and the annual Haunted History Tour in October.

Georgetown South Park People of Color Coalition has used the conference room and kitchen every other month for a potluck. Duwamish Valley Safe Streets, Georgetown Open Space Committee and Georgetown Green Space Coalition also use the space  for meetings and gatherings

Though relatively small in size, this neighborhood is marked by a heightened interest by its citizens to draw interest to keep itself alive and be recognized as an important asset and living space for future generations of families to consider home.

 

Our annual fundraising event, the Georgetown Haunted History Tour, combines a traditional guided walking tour with community theatre to bring Georgetown’s history to life.  What began as a single guided walking tour in one evening has grown to three nights with multiple departures per evening.  This popular event showcases the talents of our local population and attracts an enthusiastic crowd – selling out every year.

 

We are a registered 501(3) nonprofit organization. We welcome donations to expand our programming and make improvements to our facilities.
