Það sem verður gert

On this virtual walk, we will explore Seattle's most famous land alteration project: the complete removal of a hill in the downtown area. Through a series of illustrations and maps and historic photos, we'll virtually cover about 1.5 miles circumnavigating the old hill in the area known as the Denny Regrade, where Amazon's campus is now located. Along the walk, we'll learn about how and why early Seattleites undertook this audacious and ambitious project, which they completed between 1897 and 1930. We'll also see clues in the landscape that allow you to visualize Denny Hill as well as see historic images to better understand the story.

Hi. I’m David Williams, a member of the Atlas Obscura community.

I am an award-winning author who has been leading walking tours around Seattle for more than 15 years. My books weave together the human and natural histories of Seattle and its surrounding areas. They include Too High and Too Steep: Reshaping Seattle's Topography, Seattle Walks: Discovering History and Nature in the City, The Seattle Street-Smart Naturalist, and Waterway: The Story of Seattle's Locks and Ship Canal. This virtual walk is based on what I learned writing those books.

Having read his books I know that David knows his facts and he explains them well in an interesting way. His virtual tour uses Google map technology that I wasn't familiar with and it really added to my understanding of the subject.

David is a wonderful storyteller with an unusual ability to weave together the geologic and social history of the city in a manner accessible to a broad audience. His passion for the subject matter is palpable, and he conveys fun and excitment in his talks.

This is an extremely interesting AirBnb online experience. David does an outstanding job describing the landscape of Seattle and how it was regraded in the course of 43 years. The historical photos he shared gives you a perspective of a past Seattle.

This was a wonderful virtual tour. I'm a native Seattleite and former UW History student - and am impressed with the different perspectives and tools used by David. I also just finished reading Skid Road and this tour helped bring portions of Seattle's history even more to life! I've now ordered his book "Seattle Walks" and would be very interested in other historical virtual "walks" around Seattle he may offer in the future!

The Secret of Seattle's Disappearing Hill was fantastic. I've lived in Seattle for 20 years and never uderstood why or how the Denny Regrade took place. David did an amazing job telling the story of the Denny Regrade in a way that was interesting and easy to understand. He clearly knows his stuff and was able to explain everything very well by using a combination of current and historic photos. I loved getting to see overlays of where old buildings would be in present time - It really brought the story to life for me. I highly recommend this experience!

This was a great way to learn more about a part of Seattle's history that is probably not well known. David was a great host who is obviously very knowledgeable and friendly. I learned so much in the hour of the experience and would recommend.
