Try saying sesquicentennial three times fast! Seattle will celebrate its 150th anniversary on December 2nd. To mark the occasion, the Seattle Municipal Archives teamed up with HistoryLink.org, and together they've created a book exploring the history of the City from 1869 to 2019.

You can see some of the artifacts found in the book on display now through December at the Seattle Municipal Tower Gallery on the Level 3 Concourse.
