On July 4, 1917, amidst much fanfare and over 60 years of planning, the Lake Washington Ship Canal opened to the public. Join us and David Williams, co-author of Waterway: The Story of Seattle’s Locks and Ship Canal as he shares some of the stories about the decades of false starts, the political shenanigans, and far-reaching social, economic, and environmental impacts of the canal’s construction and operation.
Our event is free and open to the public
