Join us for our next SW Stories when Frank Zuvela presents «Riverside Alive! Seattle's Croation Fishing Community»! This free local history series is made possible through a partnership of the Southwest Seattle Historical Society and the Seattle Public Library.

Frank Zuvela will share stories of Riverside, a neighborhood near the West Seattle Bridge. Zuvela, long time history walks guide for SWSHS, is sitting still long enough to let local history award winner Carol Vincent interview him and share photos about what it was like growing up on the Duwamish River.

Settlement origins of this area go back to the people of the Duwamish tribe, later settled by Croatian immigrants in the early 1900’s. They formed a multi-ethnic neighborhood of European immigrants where Duwamish camps and longhouses had once been.

As the Duwamish River was straightened and dredged, the residential community of Riverside co-existed with manufacturing and shipbuilding.
