Video: 4 buildings that shaped Seattle’s Central District

A lot has changed in our city over the past ten years. At the same time, Seattle still has plenty of special spots — locations that offer a window to our past and point the way to a vibrant future.

We asked Donald King, a longtime resident who’s lived in the Central District for more than 30 years, to show us a few of those places in his neighborhood. As an architect, he’s also had a hand in dozens of buildings that can still be seen today, including the Carolyn Downs Medical Clinic started by local members of the Black Panther Party in 1978, and the Northwest African American Museum.
