About this spot

The first area settled in the small logging town of Seattle in 1852 was Pioneer Square. Here the logs were skidded down the hill to the sawmills along the shores of Elliott Bay. Today, Pioneer Square is a small triangular plaza with a beautiful totem pole and large iron pergola, preserved to celebrate the historical significance of the area. It is also a center for dinning and the arts. Note: Just to make things confusing, Pioneer Square is also a neighborhood, covering numerous blocks of old Seattle. If you looking up the area, make certain you have the actual square and not the entire neighborhood.
