Building history research

This in-depth research guide, Researching the History of Seattle and King County Buildings (PDF) walks you through many resources and strategies for researching the history of local buildings.

Published by Seattle Public Library Special Collections (external link), the guide was revised in 2014 in collaboration with the King County Archives to expand its coverage beyond Seattle city limits to all of King County.

Our mission is to collect, preserve, and provide access to historical County records document the history of King County's land, people, culture, and governance foster appreciation and understanding of King County's ongoing history

...and to support civic engagement and transparency in King County government.
