A visit to the Frye Museum, brought a friend and me to the First Hill and Minor neighborhoods today. We took a 5.6 mile meandering stroll trying to cover streets I had not already walked. We walked mostly between Union and Cherry from Broadway to 22nd.
This is an older neighborhood with mature trees and homes in various states of repair. Some are lovingly maintained, others look more like rental houses. 17th between Spring and Union has some lovely buildings - probably apartment buildings.
We saw some great yard art,
a mural on a retaining wall, palm trees
and a vegetable garden in a large yard.
The western portion of this area is dominated by Seattle University.
This area is home to Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd, Madison Park Church of Christ, Immaculate Conception Church,
Hamlin Robinson School (in the former T.T. Minor building),
Progressive Missionary Baptist Church, Seattle Academy, the Northwest Kidney Centers, Lake Washington's Girl's Middle School, the Department of Social & Health Services
We enjoyed both the walk and the exhibits (especially Beloved: Pictures at an Exhibition).
