Seattle Real Estate Spotlight: Wedgwood

Wedgwood is a quiet residential neighborhood in northeast Seattle, bordered by Maple Leaf to the west, and View Ridge to the east.

History

Wedgwood Rock, dubbed an erratic glacier was first used by Native Americas as a landmark and intersection for trails through Seattle forests. It is home to the first Seattle P Patch, which began as a vegetable farm in the 1920’s, that went unused for some time in the 60’s. A local woman backed by the community worked with the city to pay off taxes, and created 180 plots, which have since developed into 1,900 plots over 12 acres of land.
