Lake View Cemetery (Seattle)
1554 15th Ave E, Seattle, Washington 98112
Beneath the ground of Lake View Cemetery lies some of Seattle’s richest history. As Seattle’s most famous cemetery, many prominent Seattle pioneers lie within its grounds, including the Dennys, Maynards, Mercers, Yeslers, and Chief Seattle’s daughter, Princess Angeline. Join Jared Steed and the Atlas Obscura Society Seattle as we walk the cemetery learning about their stories and discussing their involvement in the founding and establishment of Seattle.

In addition to Seattle’s pioneer history, we learn the sordid history of Seattle’s Madam Damnable and what became of her body, honor Japanese American veterans with a visit to the Nisei War Memorial Monument, and puzzle over the cenotaph commemorating Captain Jefferson Davis Howell, brother-in-law of Confederate President Jefferson Davis.

Our tour will end at the graves of Lake View Cemetery’s most famous residents, Bruce and Brandon Lee, where we will discover what became of the funeral home which prepared Bruce Lee’s body for burial.
