Renaming the streets of South and West Seattle

I transcribed three major street renaming events in early 1900s Seattle: West Seattle; Beacon Hill, Columbia City, and the Rainier Valley; and Georgetown. As each of these cities or unincorporated areas was annexed Seattle had to weave the names into the existing grid.

These three tables were created from city ordinances. All of the tables are available for free use on figshare.

West Seattle

Here is West Seattle, from 1907. This was in Ordinance 17214. Luckily this was already scanned to pdf on the City Clerk’s site. I transcribed and tablified it. Later in the year 34 corrections were made in ordinance 17506. I included those as well.

Here is Georgetown, which was renamed after annexation in 1910. Rather than referring to Ordinance 24173 itself, I pulled this from a newspaper article about residents struggling to understand where voting booths were located due to new street names. This was in the Seattle Times, Aug 11 1910, page 3 “Georgetown Folk do Street Guessing Act”.

Fun facts

  • Many street names, like Morgan Street, were newly created in 1907 and replaced a series of street names across a number of plats, from Puget Sound to Lake Washington.
  • Next to Columbia City was originally platted by Guy Phinney as Maynard’s Lake Washington Addition. In 1907 its streets were renamed to dull things like “42nd Ave S”. Previously they were named after greats of English literature: Milton, Irving, Bulwer, Goldsmith, Abbott, Paine, Bryant, Whittier, Holmes, Tennyson, Moore, Burns, Scott, Pope, and Poe streets.
  • Alamo Place South near Jefferson Park should be named Alama Place South due to a typo in ordinance 17213 that has never been corrected.

The purpose

My end goal here is to translate the locations of each structure built in 1890 into something understandable today. My friend Curt and I created an index of all of the 1890 buildings, which we wrapped up in February. I proceeded in March to correct and tablify the already-transcribed 1895 Ordinance 4044, which rationalized street names within the city limits to that point. I thought this would be sufficient but discovered that it only covered a minority of the street name changes between 1890 and now. A week later I completed an all new index of Ballard street renames, created by painstakingly reviewing maps from before and after the 1907 annexation. I later discovered that ordinances renamed each part of the city at the time of annexation.

Street names are always changing, so I may need to do some data gathering of more sparse resources to finish my overall project. For example, I know that I’m missing the actual city named South Seattle. I have lots of fun discoveries ahead.

    I LOVE this site that I stumbled across! Thank you! I lived on Alder Place! I will explore further. Interesting that it still doesn’t have sidewalks where I lived but at least it’s paved. We could never figure out why we were surrounded by regular pavement and sidewalks every direction except the 1/2 block going east to 49th and 1/2 block going north. We even had partial gravel! Nowhere else in Seattle or West Seattle. I noticed SW Stevens, Spokane, etc. were “West Stevens” etc. in the beginning?
