Fremont: Timber-to-Troll Exhibit – Grand Opening Event–the entire community is invited to enjoy a preview of a new film about Fremont. Saturday, 2pm, November 10, 2012 at History House of Greater Seattle, 790 N 34th Street, Seattle, WA In Fremont.  Free and open to the public, come see the Grand Opening of the History House Fremont: Timber to Troll exhibit. This multi-faceted exhibit on the history of Seattle’s Fremont Neighborhood was created with a multi-generational effort of students and adults focused on telling the story of perhaps Seattle’s most unique neighborhood.

The Grand Opening Program includes:

  • Premier excerpts from an intergenerational, Living History documentary on Fremont
  • A Historical Timeline that documents the rich history of Fremont, its historical connection to LakeUnion, as well as the development of Fremont itself
  •  A Community Photo Exhibit with photographs taken by elementary, middle and high school students, as well as adults, that show visually what Fremont means to them. Selected photos will be part of a photographic exhibit that will be permanently displayed in the local community
  • A Community Art Project-students and adults have  created art projects on what Fremont means to them. Selected pieces will be included in the Project Archives and available for public viewing
  • Research of ethnic immigration into Fremont, documenting their contributions and how they have helped shape the Fremont community.
  • A permanent Historical Exhibit for display in the community.
  • Creation of the Fremont Community Youth Action Committee that allows local youth the opportunity of working with adults to help shape the future of Fremont.


Coming next March: Fremont History Month and Fremont History Walk –these two events will allow a wide cross section of the Fremont community to share traditions, art, music and cultural history with the greater Seattle community.


The Fremont: Timber to Troll project is funded primarily by a Neighborhood Matching Grant from the City of Seattle
