活動內容

On this walk, we will explore Seattle's most famous land alteration project: the complete removal of a hill in the downtown area. We'll cover about 1.5 miles circumnavigating the old hill in the area known as the Denny Regrade, where Amazon's campus is now located. Along the walk, we'll learn about how and why early Seattleites undertook this audacious and ambitious project, which they completed between 1897 and 1930. We'll also see clues in the landscape that allow you to visualize Denny Hill and walk through the heart of the Amazon campus.

Hi. I’m David Williams, a member of the Atlas Obscura community.

I am an award-winning author who has been leading walking tours around Seattle for more than 15 years. My books weave together the human and natural histories of Seattle and its surrounding areas. They include Too High and Too Steep: Reshaping Seattle's Topography, Seattle Walks: Discovering History and Nature in the City, The Seattle Street-Smart Naturalist, and Waterway: The Story of Seattle's Locks and Ship Canal. This walk is based on what I learned writing those books.

I highly recommend David's tours! What a fascinating and delightful experience to learn about the history of Seattle, to stand in the places of the former hill's footprint, to imagine what it was like before and how people accomplished this crazy achievement to remove an entire hill. It will blow your mind! David has really deep knowledge about the history, geology, and architecture of the area, and tells stories with an infectious enthusiasm that makes the history come alive. I can't wait to take all of David's tours!

I have lived in Seattle for almost 40 years and never knew exactly where Denny Hill had been originally situated. It was really interesting to get not only the geographical/geological context, but also a cultural/political/economic sense of the times in which decisions were to move a major Seattle hill into Elliot Bay. It was fun. Highly recommend.

If you are new to Seattle or have lived here a long time you will gain a wealth of knowledge from David B. Williams. As a local historian and author of "Too High and Too Steep: Reshaping Seattle's Topography," David has a depth of knowledge and understanding about the urban planning, geography and regrading that made Seattle what it is today. I would highly recommend this tour for all Seatteites, urban planning and history nerds!
