    Wedgwood

    Wedgwood is a neighborhood in northeast Seattle, north of Ravenna, along what would become 35th Avenue NE and just south of the Lake City area. Wedgwood (sometimes misspelled Wedgewood) was born of the housing boom of World War II, but its history reaches back to prehistoric times. Native Americans used the Wedgwood Rock as a landmark. In later years, picnickers, university students, climbers, and even hippies enjoyed it too. One of the farms in the neighborhood became the first P-Patch in Seattle.

    Most of the homes in this neighborhood can be described as mid-century homes with mature trees and larger lots. Many of the smaller and less cared for homes were torn down over the years and replaced by modern townhome developments.

    There are four schools in the neighborhood, one public and three private. Our Lady of the Lake Parish School, Seattle Jewish Community School and the highly regarded University Prep are the private schools and the public school is Wedgwood Elementary.

    These long-standing schools and the restaurants and shops are thriving even as new businesses move in to the area with the new housing. Then the pleasure of both Magnuson Park and Matthews Beach are added bonuses for the neighborhood.
