The first white inhabitants of the area that is now Seattle were the Denny Party who reached the Alki Point in the mid nineteenth century, and one year later they moved to Elliott Bay. Seattle was recognized as a city in 1869. The city owes it's name to the chief of the Duwamish and Suquamish tribes, Chief Seattle and David Swinson is the one credited with the naming of the city after the famous native chief. A terrible fire devastated the city in 1889 and almost brought down the whole business district, luckily killing nobody. The first general Strike in the United States took place in Seattle around 1919. The Goodwill Games, WTO meeting, took place in Seattle around 1990 and 1999, respectively.

In 2001, an earthquake measuring 6.8 on the Richter scale hit the area in the around Seattle, though nothing much was destroyed it remained as a constant reminder that the region is susceptible to much stronger earthquakes in the future. The city of Seattle was known as a hub for lumber as the industry took of in the early years since the cities incorporation. The Gold Rush followed but was relatively small and later the shipbuilding era in the beginning of the twentieth century. Mid into the twentieth century, Seattle's economy was driven by the growth of one of the largest companies in the world today, Boeing.

The Firm finally shifted it's corporate headquarters in 2001, to Chicago. Here are a few demographics on Seattle; Living in the city are five hundred and sixty nine thousand people, ranking twenty fourth in the United States as of 2003, 73.40% of the population are Caucasian, 13.71% are Asian Americans, 8.44% are African Americans, 1.10% are Native Americans and 0.50% Pacific Islanders. The city has some of the finest hotels, lodges and inns. Here are a few of them; Watertown Hotel, Marqueen Hotel, Days Inn Seattle North, Ramada Inn Seattle at Northgate, Best Western Evergreen Inn, Silver Cloud Inn Seattle Downtown Lake Union and Residence Inn by Marriott Downtown & Lake Union. Seattle has three of the four major sports franchises in the United States based in the city. They are Seattle Seahawks (National Football League), Seattle Supersonics (National Basketball Association) and the Seattle Mariners (Major League Baseball). The other teams based in the city are; Seattle Thunderbirds (Western Hockey League), Seattle Sounders and Seattle Storm (Women's National Basketball Association).
