celebrating the centennial of a West Seattle home

one of the great things about this part of Seattle is…. possibly due to the fact that it was after all the birthplace of this city….. that not everything is brand spanking new this side of Elliott Bay. There are quite a few 100+ year old houses still lived in, looked after and loved. Today sees a former Mayor of Seattle team up with the Southwest Seattle Historical Society to show off his labour of love as his Craftsman home reaches it’s centennial. Sadly of course (look at those front steps!) it is not very wheelchair accessible plus it’s at the top of a big hill in the Admiral district. That means I’ll be rolling to the Historical Society’s Log House Museum down here on the flat part instead to volunteer for them for a couple of hours this afternoon.
I did get to see the whole video tour though 😉

About girlonahandcycle

Natural Brit/Naturalized American wife, mom, grandma and all around old broad still happily ignoring my MS (since 1985 - ha!). Every time it slows me down I find a way to speed back up which explains my very cool Tilite wheelchair and Top End handcycle ..........also my ripped arms ; ) Don't get back to the homeland or to other cool places quite as easily or often as I'd like anymore so theoretically my rambling here keeps me a little more connected to far away friends and family.
