Seattle World’s Fair

A real bird’s eye view! That’s the Seattle Space Needle that we know and love.
It was described as: “Jewels gleamed from the intellect and imagination from some of the finest minds of America”. In the1962 world fair, It drew over 2.3 million visitors, when nearly 20,000 people a day used its elevators. Now you can eat at the SkyCity restaurant, and really feel like you are on top of the world!

The Alvord Family

What a house! Mr. Alvord is here with his spouse! What a picture perfect family.

The house was built in the early 1880’s. It was located on 78th Ave South. One of the family members name may be Inez Shaffer.

Can you guess the price of this house in the 1880’s?

I’ll give you a hint the Bereighter home at The Greater Kent Historical Society cost $25,000 in the 1800s.
