Seattle: Town Hall Lecture - "Who Built Seattle?"

March 28, 2017
7:10 PM - 9:10 PM
(GMT-08:00) Pacific Time (US & Canada); Tijuana
Join us as we explore the history of Seattle's infrastructure during a one-hundred year period during which critical services (water, power, transit, etc.) were implemented and notable buildings were erected.  Bob Ortblad, a Seattle native, civil engineer and history enthusiast, will present the story of how Seattle was built and how it has changed over the years. Come meet the self-taught engineers, dedicated public servants, aggressive land developers and gifted visionaries who made the Emerald City what it is today. We will meet in the lobby of Town Hall 20 minutes prior to the start of the lecture.  Following the lecture, there will be an optional discussion at a nearby location. Tickets for the first 10 people are complimentary.
