Τι θα κάνετε

Discover a treasure trove of Seattle history and cultural significance, in an experience filled with colorful, insider scoop — all hidden in plain sight. We will delve into the larger-than-life depictions of long-gone Seattle history that make up the Murals of West Seattle (and provide particulars about two other murals too distant for this tour).

In this fact-filled adventure, you will get the full story of how these murals were created by civic leaders and a team of world-class artists, discover the tricks of their trade, learn which local luminaries were depicted in various scenarios and myriad behind-the-scenes anecdotes about these unique achievements.

You also will see the inspiring results of the ongoing restoration of these 30-year-old showpieces. In addition, you will glimpse 10 recently installed bronze historical panels. You will come away with an appreciation for how any community can instill pride in its citizenry by telling its foundational stories through public art -- and how West Seattle, known as "the Birthplace of Seattle," serves as an example for us all.

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

The Murals of West Seattle touch my heart — and the heart of Seattle, revealing how our city and peninsula began and flourished.

My mother was born (in 1923) and raised on this peninsula. I served as editor of the West Seattle Herald (1983-1988) and "West Side Story" history book (1987) and for many years on the board of the Southwest Seattle Historical Society and as its executive director.

The Murals of West Seattle project took shape in 1989-1993 and was led by Earl Cruzen, for whom I provided historical photos for world-class artists to use as the basis for their creations. I'm the only one remaining from the core of the project, and I'm proud and passionate about leading tours to share the story of the murals' origin and recent restoration.

Πού θα είστε

For this 90-minute tour, we will start at the Hi-Yu Parade mural at the West Seattle Post Office and walk counter-clockwise through the two square blocks of the West Seattle business district known as the Junction — named for the corner where two lines for the nation's first municipally owned streetcar system intersected more than 110 years ago. We will stop at nine sites along streets, alleys and parking lots to view these massive masterworks.

Excellent history for new residents and visitors provided by Clay who is perfectly enthusiastic and knowledgeable...a West Seattle treasure himself. Even long-time West Seattle residents will locate some wonderful new finds in these historical mural paintings around our junction... And they too may view them with a different appreciation afterwards.

This tour is very unique and fascinating! Clay is so kind and passionate. He gave my friend his jacket when he saw her shivering. 10/10 I recommend!

I've lived in West Seattle for 15 years and seen most of the murals we saw repeatedly (I believe there was one I was unfamiliar with, and one I hadn't realized was a mural). It was neat to see them up close and hear stories about how they were created, what they were of, and in one case how it was destroyed. I also enjoyed learning that they're actively being restored; the one we saw that was most recently restored (on the Key Bank) I hadn't noticed had been restored and I go to the Key Bank every month. Clay is an expert in West Seattle's history and made the murals come to life. My companion was unable to go due to illness; I look forward to repeating the walk later this year!

This was an amazing tour - i've walked through west seattle a number of times, but little did i know what a wonderful history existed on the very walls in front of me. Totally a worthwhile tour.

What a great tour! I've lived in West Seattle for 5 years and I learned about the historical context surrounding these beautiful murals that I never would have known otherwise. I'll never look at them the same way. Clay was welcoming and provided great insight into West Seattle history.
