Dingbats, Bel-Bains, and Thunderbirds – Capitol Hill’s Mid-Century Apartments

EK On The Go – Episode #25

Join us for a conversation with Tom Heuser, President of the Capitol Hill Historic Society and visual artist, Lana Blinderman in an exploration of Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood through it’s easily overlooked architecture, apartment buildings from the 1950’s-1970’s.

For decades, these apartments and condominiums had provided architectural ambience, offered relatively affordable housing, and become places where residents gathered to develop and shape the city’s culture and community.

At the start of the pandemic, Tom & Lana surveyed their neighborhood’s mid-century multifamily buildings, thanks to a grant from King County’s Arts & Heritage organization 4Culture. Today we will hear what they discovered.

Upcoming events offered by Capitol Hill Historic Society.
