Queen Anne was named after an architectural style of home that became popular in the 1880s with the affluent residences in the neighborhood. The hill’s steep slopes – rising to 456 feet at its highest point and completely surrounded by water – made it one of the last neighborhoods in Seattle to be developed. The top of the hill is home to many local shops, restaurants, and groceries developed in the first decade of the 1900s. Throughout its history, Queen Anne's proximity to the downtown core has attracted a flourishing community.
