Fremont Walking Tour

Join Seattle Obscura Society for a neighborhood walking tour, as we uncover the ups and downs, the ins and outs, and the past, present and future of Fremont, Seattle.

Fremont is one of Seattle’s oldest, quirkiest, and most beloved neighborhoods. Known (officially) as the "Center of the Universe," strange oddities greet visitors around every corner. 

Join guide Megan Hanna as we learn about the history of this neighborhood and see firsthand what makes it so eclectic. From an original piece of the Berlin Wall, to a statue of Lenin, to a bridge troll, adventurers will see it all, as we celebrate what makes Fremont so wonderfully unique.
