Bill Speidel’s Underground Tour Seattle, Washington, United-states

An amazing look at the history of the city that is underneath the city in Seattle.

I believe it is important to understand the history of a place when you travel as it shapes the geography, cuisine and attitude of a place.  Well Seattle was founded on rogues, murderers and prostitution.  So- a good start for sure.  Bill Speidel was a historian who has written many books on the history of the Seattle – including an infamous one that is banned from the Seattle Public Schools libraries because it reveals that the largest benefactor to the school system other than very recently, The Gates Foundation, was a madam who had built a prostitution empire in Seattle’s early days.  This is one of the titillating facts you discover, along with an explanation as to why entire city blocks have the first floor of their buildings below street level.  This is a solid tour for those whom like to know about the origin of the place they are and to hear some dirty stories-both literally and figuratively-and they serve beer.
