Historic Seattle will hold a tour of First Hill in Seattle from 10 a.m. to noon Sept. 10.

The neighborhood was home to private clubs, important religious institutions and swank hotels. It was the city's premier residential enclave from the 1890s through the first decades of the 1900s — where mayors, judges, industrialists, timber barons and art collectors lived.

Historic Seattle said the tour includes several buildings that have been saved because of its involvement: the Dearborn House, Bel-Boy Apartments, Heg-Phillips House and Fire Station 25.

The Washington Trust for Historic Preservation is co-hosting the tour. It will be led by Lawrence Kreisman, editor and lead author of “Tradition and Change on Seattle's First Hill: Propriety, Profanity, Pills, and Preservation.”

Meet at Stimson-Green Mansion at 1204 Minor Ave.
