Members of the community were able to take home a slice of log from the historic 1904 Alki Homestead at this year’s auction benefit for the Southwest Seattle Historical Society. This year’s presentation was “Coming Home to the Homestead, Alki Homestead” held at Salty’s on Alki. Restoration has begun on the famous landmark that was destroyed by fire in 2009. Brother and sister, Catherine Gruye Alexamnder and Rob Gruye told stories of growing up in the Alki Homestead. We all look forward to the rebirth of this much loved Alki icon.
