About West Seattle, WA
Kent County is the home of West Seattle. West Seattle is a suburb of Seattle and has a population of 51,803 people.
West Seattle is the largest and oldest suburb in Seattle. Although they left within a few months, the first white settlers arrived in the region in 1851. West Seattle maintained its cultural independence while fighting for ferries, highways, and bridges that brings the suburb nearer to the expanding neighbors to the east.
A group of 12 children and 10 adults left the schooner Exact in 1851. The women cried when they was supposedly their new land. One member of their advance was waiting for them on the beach with the first building of the first structure of what the settlers believed would become a thriving community, which was a roofless cabin.
In the Puget Sound area when the landing party arrived there were a minimum of 17 Suquamish and Duwamish villages. The place where the party landed was once used as a burial sit by the Duwamish Indians. However, under the Donation Land Law, the settlers claimed ownership of everything they surveyed.
They called their proposed community New York, for the hometown of one of the men in the party. The settlers built their first cabin and completed three more cabins during the next few months. However, many of the settlers became ill, food supplies ran low, and it continued to rain.
In 1853, a man named Terry renamed and platted the small community. He named it Alki.
Although the small community grew, Mr. Terry was frustrated by the pace of the growth. He convinced two men to start a business to make barrels, became a partner in a sawmill, served as postmaster, and operated a general store. However, both the barrel business and the sawmill closed in 1854. In 1856, Mr. Terry traded his 320 acres of land in Alki to a man named David Maynard for 260 acres in downtown Seattle that Mr. Maynard owned.
West Seattle became the commercial and the business center in the region. In 1885, in what is currently known as Admiral District the small community was first platted and in 1888, turned n over to a land development company. There were residential neighborhoods developed in Arbor Heights, Highland Park, Gatewood, and Fauntleroy. Eventually, Alki became a resort area that had wealthy residents with summer homes.
The public transportation between Seattle and West Seattle was the infrequent and irregular steamships of the Mosquito Fleet that docked at Alki prior to 1888. That same year, the West Seattle Improvement Land Company purchased what is currently known as the Admiral district, platted it again and started investing in amenities such as transportation so that they could attract potential homebuyers.
These developers sold over $300,000 worth of property in West Seattle in the first year of operation. However, in 1893, the national economic crisis left West Seattle with a number of closed businesses and a real estate market that was collapsing. In 1897, the company was closed.
In 1902, only the community of West Seattle was incorporated. Some civic leader proposed that the only answer to the public service problems was annexation to Seattle in 1903. However, because they were afraid of losing local control, there was significant opposition to annexation. Once it was proven they there were the necessary 1,500 residents, West Seattle was reincorporated as a third class city.
In 1907, West Seattle annexed Spring Hill, Alki, and Youngstown. That same year, West Seattle formally became part of Seattle and consisted of over 16 square miles. In 1921, the direct ferry service between downtown Seattle and West Seattle was eliminated.
There still remain traces of the presence of Native Indians. During the 1920's and 1930's middens were found that were full of artifacts such as arrowheads, and clam scrapers.
