The Moore Hotel, Seattle

The Moore Hotel

1926 2 Nd Ave

The Moore Hotel and Theatre, currently Seattle's oldest entertainment venue, stood as one of the finest houses on all the West Coast when it opened in December 1907. Located on 2nd Avenue and Virginia Street, was spearheaded by local developer James A. Moore (1861-1929), and looked forward to the expected influx of visitors to the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition, slated for the summer and fall of 1909. The Moore, which today hosts musical artists and touring stage productions from around the world, was originally designed as a stage venue.
