体验内容

On this virtual walk, we will explore Seattle's most famous land alteration project: the complete removal of a hill in the downtown area. Through a series of illustrations and maps and historic photos, we'll virtually cover about 1.5 miles circumnavigating the old hill in the area known as the Denny Regrade, where Amazon's campus is now located. Along the walk, we'll learn about how and why early Seattleites undertook this audacious and ambitious project, which they completed between 1897 and 1930. We'll also see clues in the landscape that allow you to visualize Denny Hill as well as see historic images to better understand the story. A wonderful way to connect teams and groups to Seattle and its rich history.
Other things to note
This is an abbreviated version of my regular walk offered through Airbnb and Atlas Obscura. The walk is also featured in my book "Seattle Walks," which contains 17 walks exploring Seattle's human and natural history. It's for sale through my website.

Hi. I’m David Williams, a member of the Atlas Obscura community.

I am an award-winning author who has been leading walking tours around Seattle for more than 15 years. My books weave together the human and natural histories of Seattle and its surrounding areas, with a goal of helping people connect to place. They include Too High and Too Steep: Reshaping Seattle's Topography, Seattle Walks: Discovering History and Nature in the City, The Seattle Street-Smart Naturalist, and Waterway: The Story of Seattle's Locks and Ship Canal. This virtual walk is based on what I learned writing those books.

    This was actually the second time I had done David's tour, and I enjoyed it as much as I did the first time. David's storytelling and use of historical photographs and video along with modern maps really brings this part of Seattle's history alive.

    Great storytelling and really enjoyed the pictures. I'm a Seattle transplant so David's tour helped me learn more about its origins. Definitely recommend to anyone interested in how Seattle was built.

    I can highly recommend David's virtual tour through this fascinating part of Seattle's history. He is a true expert and tells the story compellingly with the help of incredible photos, maps, and video. I learned an incredible amount in a short period of time, and I think anyone with an interest in history, architecture, urban planning, or even photography would love this experience.

    Growing up in Seattle I learned surprisingly little about the transformations that early city planners engineered to shape the landscape. This was a fun multimedia tour that helped fill in some of those gaps (pun intended) and David was friendly and knowledgeable. I recommend this for anyone with interests in Seattle or NW history.

    Great way to learn about Seattle! I just moved here and was excited to see a virtual experience that could introduce me to my new city. David’s presentation was informative and fun! I look forward to being able to do it in person post-COVID!

    David's knowledge of Seattle helps all newbies to the area better understand the complexities of the city and the history related to. Five stars!
