The Admiral District is the oldest neighborhood in West Seattle, Washington. Did you know that cable cars and ferries connected it to Seattle in the early 1900s? These ferries included the paddle steamers City of Seattle and West Seattle. Homes in this area range from pre war bungalows, to ramblers with expansive views of Puget Sound, to condominiums clustered around the distinct shopping district. It is an ever changing community.
In 1997 the historic Admiral Theatre was transformed by a magnificent renovation and was reopened. The 1942 movie house is a one-of-a-kind performance venue for a wide variety of events. The main floor accommodates as many as 300 for sit-down dinners, or up to 500 in festival style or traditional theatre seating and 502 seats available in the balcony. What a wonderful place for your next event!
Another interesting fact about Admiral is that in 1911, “A new era in public recreation in Seattle and in the Pacific Northwest was opened with the dedication of the recreation center on Hiawatha Play field.” Originally designed by the Olmsted Brother’s for what was then the largest public play field in Seattle. It was altered and relocated in 1932 when the demand for a longer running track caused its relocation from the east side of the center to the west and a continual redesign of the eastern half of the play field.
