Try saying sesquicentennial three times fast! Seattle will celebrate its 150th anniversary on Dec. 2. To mark the occasion, our friends at the Seattle Municipal Archives have partnered with the folks at HistoryLink.org, and together they've created a book exploring the history of the city from 1869 to 2019.
