This Thursday, May 25th, the Queen Anne Historical Society is hosting its annual meeting. Free and open to all, this year’s meeting focuses on the Ship Canal and Ballard Locks – both turning 100 this year.

The meeting features a talk by Jennifer Ott, co-author of the upcoming book,  Waterway: The Story of Seattle’s Locks and Ship Canal. Jennifer will tell the history of the Lake Washington Ship Canal – what compelled civic leaders to build it and the role it played in Seattle development over the past century. Industry, transportation, and the character of the region changed and morphed in response to the changes brought by the canal and locks.

The annual meeting begins at 7pm at Aegis Living, 223 W Galer St. In addition to Jennifer Ott’s talk, new board members will be elected, and it’s a great chance to join the Queen Anne Historical Society. All are welcome!
