About this Event
WW-ASME Presents the Georgetown Steam Plant Tour:

This is an on-site tour of the Georgetown Steam Plant, a National Historic Mechanical Engineering Landmark and local space that hosts community events and artists.

The Georgetown Steam Plant was built in 1906 to energize the region’s growing electric streetcar system. At the time, it was at the center of the rapidly growing Georgetown neighborhood. The plant was designed to run on either coal or oil, but shortly after it was built, hydropower became the primary source of energy for the region and the plant operated until 1977 when it was completely decommissioned.

Since its decommissioning, building owner Seattle City Light (SCL) has worked to preserve, repair and restore the building. Under SCL’s management, the Georgetown Steam Plant has been recognized as a National Historic Landmark, Seattle Landmark and Historic Mechanical Engineering Landmark.

The entrance to the plant can be a little hard to find. The gate through the fence is on the North side, right along the fenced perimeter of Boeing Field.

From I-5, to Albro, which bends into Ellis Ave, and then the first left onto S Warsaw St.
