Southeast Seattle

Texto en español.

Comprising the neighborhoods of Beacon Hill, Mount Baker, Columbia City and the Rainier Valley, this multicultural enclave is home to significant sites of the Latino community of Seattle. Immigrant communities have flourished in this area for decades, and people of every ethnicity now call Southeast Seattle home.  Various Latino owned and operated businesses have sprunged throughout the years alongside a multiplicity of cultures and languages. The founding of El Centro de la Raza in the old Beacon Hill School cemented the presence of Latinos in Southeast Seattle.
