SummaryJoin the Seattle Public Library, History Link, and MOHAI in monthly conversations that stimulate meaningful dialogue about the ways the city's past has influenced the present.
DescriptionWhat would Seattle be like with a comprehensive urban rail and subway system? Or a massive park stretching from the shores of South Lake Union to Denny Street?







Seattle voters have rejected multiple visions of Seattle. These decisions of how Seattle is—or might have been—shape the way we navigate and inhabit our city today. From Virgil Bogues’ 1911 plan for mass transit to the 1995 Seattle Commons proposal, there have been countless visions of Seattle’s possible future ranging from the prosaic to the fantastical.







Join Eric Scigliano as he explores the Seattles that might have been.
