ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

Even as Seattle pushes at seemingly incredible speed into the future, with technology firms based here leading the world and development in West Seattle changing the complexion of the community every day, we cling to and even celebrate our past. Part of that is found in Seattle's oldest house that went on the market Thursday, the open houses are at 3-6 today and 2-5 tomorrow, and​​ bids are due Monday: https://www.redfin.com/WA/Seattle/3045-64th-Ave-SW-98116/home/150344.

The West Seattle Herald provided coverage about the house back on April 27, 1988 (see attached photos of the story, courtesy of SWSHS Executive Director Clay Eals).

Our reporter Brad Chrisman wrote about the house that it was, "built sometime in the late 1850's or early 1860's when Alki was owned by a fellow named Doc." That's a reference for one of Seattle's original pioneer residents Dr. David Swinson "Doc" Maynard.
