About Washington Hall

Located in the Seattle’s Squire Park neighborhood in the Central District since 1908, Washington Hall has been a place for the community to gather, celebrate and learn for over 100 years.  With a rich history of hosting pivotal musicians like Jimi Hendrix, Duke Ellington and Count Basie, and trailblazing activists such as W.E.B. du Bois, Marcus Garvey, and Martin Luther King Jr, to serving as a gathering place for the Danish Brotherhood in America and Sons of Haiti, community dances and gatherings, Washington Hall is poised to serve as an important community landmark for years to come.

    We got a couple of postcards about this from Town Hall. This seems tacky. Vote for this great architectural location, so it wins out over that other great architectural venue? Feels like “Sophie’s Choice”.
