Comprised of more than 440 primary properties, the South Capitol Neighborhood Historic District was listed on the National Register of History Places in 1991.
While 23 homes pre-date the turn of the century, the majority of homes were built between 1900 and 1929, coinciding with the construction of the capitol buildings nearby.
Our Indigenous Beginnings
South Capitol Neighborhood is located on the ancestral lands of the Steh-Chass band of the Squaxin Island Tribe. Each of the seven inlets of South Puget Sound had an associated settlement.
A little gem among the city’s green spaces year-round, for a few weeks each year the tree lined parkway becomes a local mecca for folks seeking to capture a moment of fall brilliance. We know Maple Park, but why do we have this lovely little space?
We are fortunate to live amidst the sheltering boughs of a legacy bequeathed to us all from two neighborhood stalwarts, Mayor Amanda Smith and Margaret McKenny, a leading member of the Mayor’s Tree Committee of the 1950s-’60s.
A Halloween Story
Our neighborhood has been a go-to destination for Halloween for 30 years…here’s a brief history of how it happened. More recently, a “Hallows’ Eve” was started…will it continue? It’s up to us.
Neighborhood Food Project
