This image, from the Washington State Historical Society, shows an obvious wetland in the lower right hand corner.
So, what I’ve been wondering is, since we know what was there pretty recently, what do we do with the area? Is it a good place to restore? Do we focus our commercial restoration on the old brewhouse and pre-World War II structures on the bluff on the northwest side of Capitol Way? Or, since this is a large flat area that’s already been developed, do we right it off?
