Situated on the Duwamish River, South Park has a rich tradition of farming and industry. It was along these banks that the Duwamish tribe set up fishing camps and grew crops, a practice that continued with generations of farmers who were drawn to this fertile land. Seattle's Pike Place Market got its start in 1907 when South Park farmers, needing an outlet for their crops, set up the now famous open-air market. With the first land claim in 1851, South Park became home to some of Seattle's original settlers. Today its diverse history has made it one of the few Seattle neighborhoods to be divided into both commercial and residential land zones.
