Spring has arrived, and you’re likely to observe or even make a few changes to your spring landscape. We can easily say the Lake Washington Ship Canal was a BIG change exerted over the past century!

Williams on Wednesday, April 19, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. Join Ballard Historical Society to answer, “What drove civic leaders to plan a waterway, in a city already surrounded by water?” A great event for those interested in Seattle history or economic and environmental effects of man-made changes in our region.
