Seattle, Washington is located between the fresh waters of Lake Washington and the salt waters of Puget Sound. There are two mountain ranges beyond these waters, which are the Cascades in the east and the Olympics in the west. This community encourages abundant natural resources and prolific vegetation, in a mild marine climate.
In 1851, some white pioneers arrived in the Seattle region. The established a settlement that was first known as New York. Before long they relocated to what is now called the historic, which is only short way across Elliott Bay. Then, the settlement is was renamed to Seattle.
In 1853, a man named Henry Yesler operated a lumber mill, which primary support for the local economy. A considerable amount of the production of this mill went to the booming community of San Francisco. In 1856, a brief encounter with some hostile Indians briefly interrupted the development of the new settlement. However, the year 1859 brought the incorporation of Seattle as authorized by the legislature of the territory. Now, the population of Seattle was over 2,000 people.
In spite of coal being discovered close to Lake Washington, the 1870's were somewhat quiet. However, this discovery resulted in dramatic growth. The Northern Pacific Railroad announced that its westernmost terminus would be in Tacoma, during the early 1870's. Tacoma is located some 40 miles south of Seattle. However, Seattle forced a connection with the Northern Pacific Railroad, in spite of the disappointment that the local leaders felt.In 1886, the railroad was completed.
The population of Seattle again dramatically increased. Although, shipping, shipbuilding, the wholesale trade, and fishing helped to support the local economy, the main industries were coal mining and milling lumber. In 1889, a very damaging fire in the center of the business district in Seattle, destroyed the structures on some 116 acres. Although the property damage was in the millions of dollars, no one was killed in the fire. Also, the fire did little to cause the enthusiasm for Seattle to wane. The fact is that the fire provided the opportunity for some rather major municipal improvements, that included a municipal water works, rebuilt wharves, a professional fire department, and regraded and widened streets. From that time forward, all structures that were built in the burn district were mandated to be constructed with either steel or brick.
In spite of another railroad, known as the Great Northern arriving, it wasn't very prosperous during the 1890's. Although, in 1893 gold was discovered close to the Klondike River in Alaska and the Yukon Territory in Canada, once again made Seattle a booming community, in 1897, a nationwide business depression didn't overlook Seattle. The community had its already established shipping lines that were the foremost outfitting location for prospectors and exploited its proximity to the Klondike. Seattle continued to experience explosive growth in the early 1900's. Two additional railroads, which were the Milwaukee Railroad and the Union Pacific Railroad arrived in Seattle. The arrival of these two railroads reinforced the position of Seattle as a shipping and trade hub. This was especially true in the North Pacific and in Asia.
Seattle's population became ever increasingly more diversified. During this time frame, the International District was where many different Asian ethnic groups called home. There were considerable numbers of Filipinos, Jews, Chinese, and Italians. The Japanese were operating hotels and truck gardens, the African Americans became waiters and porters, and the Scandinavians worked in lumber milling and catching fishing.
In 1909, Seattle sponsored the International fair. The population of Seattle was close to some 240,000 people. The Pacific-Yukon-Alaska Exposition celebrated the cultural and economic links that Seattle had made the along the way of what is currently called North Pacific Rim.
In America, some 20% of the ship tonnage in the shipbuilding industry during WW I was produced in Seattle, which received some national when, in 1919, workers went on strike in order to keep their high wages during wartime. It wasn't long before another general strike followed, which was the longest such in the history of this country. The success of this strike fueled postwar fears about socialists and radicals, although it didn't have a cogent objective, the strike fueled American postwar fears regarding radicals and socialists.
Another reputation that Seattle gained was for a boom and bust economy. During the 1920', there were depressed conditions lumber and shipbuilding trades. During the 1930's, the Great Depression rocked Seattle especially hard. Nearly 1,000 men were unemployed. However, the economy rebounded and the shipyard were once again thriving as the result of WW II. In 1916, a somewhat successful aircraft manufacturer, named the Boeing Company was completed. During wartime, Boeing increased its workforce by over 1,200% and sales increased to $600 million from $10 million annually. However, there was an economic slump in Seattle after the end of the war, which continued until the middle 1950's.
During the mid to late 1950's, Boeing introduced the 707 commercial jet airliner successfully, which fueled another burst of municipal optimism. The world's fair was sponsored by Seattle in 1962. Some of the attractions at this fair included the Space Needle, the Pacific Science Center, entertainment and sports halls which left Seattle with a permanent legacy in the Seattle Center.
