Presented by:

  • Kathy Jeffers, Board Member - Seattle Fireboat Duwamish

  • View a diorama of the 1909 Seattle Fireboat Duwamish, then proceed across the park to see the real Seattle Fireboat Duwamish at the Historic Ships Wharf!

    Visitors will encounter an antique trunk sitting on a table in the park. There is a small porthole into which the visitor can look into the interior of the trunk and see a diorama depicting a scene of Seattle, featuring the Seattle Fireboat Duwamish. The Duwamish is a fireboat built in 1909 for the city of Seattle’s fire department. The fireboat is now a National Historic Landmark. Visitors can see the real Fireboat, in it’s modern state, at the Historic Ships Wharf just outside of MOHAI.

    The diorama inside the trunk will connect the 1909 version of the Seattle Fireboat Duwamish with the newer version which resides on the Historic Ships Wharf on the other side of MOHAI. It connects the past with the present.
