SEATTLE

About the city

Seattle is the largest city on the west coast north of San Francisco. About 4000 years ago the first settlers found this place and never left untill the first European settlers arrived in 1792. In the 19th century Seattle turned into a commercial gateway to Alaska and shipbuilding center. This big growth stopped during and after the Second World War. After the war more and more people left Seattle, but the city was recovering slowly and more people came back. Now a days Seattle is a big city with a good economy.
