Harvard Belmont District:
The Rich Life on Capitol Hill
Have your cake and gossip too as we visit Seattle's only residential Landmark District featuring a wealth of upscale, early 20th century architecture.

H. Albertson. They provided innovative plans, a high level of craftsmanship and beautifully landscaped courtyards, which gives this neighborhood its distinctive character.
