Seattle, Washington, boasts an incredibly rich history in a breathtaking location. Situated on an isthmus between the Puget Sound and Lake Washington, Seattle was originally inhabited by Native Americans until the Denny Party, led by Arthur A. Denny, arrived in 1851. It was re-situated to its current site and named Seattle in honor of tribal leaders in 1853. Seattle has a background in logging and shipbuilding industries, brought on by the Gold Rush to Alaska. Economy in the growing city was greatly damaged by the Great Depression, but the end of World War 2 and a growing aircraft manufacturing industry set up by Boeing, let the economy regain a foothold. The city has continued to grow and is now a thriving center for technology. It is also one of the leading cities in the “Green” and sustainable development movements.
