Beacon Hill is a diverse neighborhood situated in the heart of Seattle. Through the 20th century to the present, Beacon Hill has welcomed immigrants from all over the world – people from Italy, Serbia,  Japan, Vietnam, Somalia, and many other countries have made their homes here. It is a vibrant neighborhood full of culture, good eats, and community green spaces.

The space has indigenous roots. We acknowledge that Beacon Hill and its greenspaces are on stolen Coast Salish land, specifically the ancestral land of the Duwamish. Due to historic racial redlining, the city was one of the few places in Seattle that persons of color could own land, so it has become one of the most diverse communities in Seattle.
