ABOUT US: About the Junction Association

Established in 1907.

The West Seattle Junction was little more than boggy woodland until April 1907, when two streetcar lines were connected at California Avenue SW and SW Alaska Street (then 9th Street). Within a month, a dozen real estate agents had opened offices at what quickly became known as “the Junction.”

By 1911, the Junction had grown from a collection of real-estate offices into a full-fledged business district. At least three grocery stores, two lumber companies, a hardware store, two electrical firms, three physicians, and two fuel outlets were located within a half-mile radius of the streetcar crossing.

Now the Junction is Downtown West Seattle–an eclectic Seattle neighborhood’s main street and center stage. It’s the hub of activity where the West Seattle community connects for coffee, shopping, business activities, doctor visits, dinner, drinks and camaraderie.
