We are honored to have Riverside native Frank Zuvela return to lead our annual Historic Riverside Walking Tour on Saturday, Aug. 5, 2017.

The tour begins at the Riverside Memorial, at the intersection of West Marginal Way Southwest and Southwest Marginal Place, directly below and immediately south of the high-level West Seattle Bridge.

Cost is $5/person, which is a donation to our historical society.

Riverside, the largely Croatian community that thrived on fishing and related industry, nestles between the Duwamish River and Pigeon Point, and its small collection of hillside streets and homes is the site of many stories that are related by the energetic Zuvela, 95.

The historic Riverside Memorial was dedicated in January 2012. The dedication of the Riverside Memorial, and the history of the Riverside community, is covered in detail on the “Now and Then” website of Paul Dorpat, in the West Seattle Herald, on the West Seattle Blog and in our own Footprints newsletter.

Please enjoy this one-minute video that showcases the Riverside Memorial.
