Virginia Inn - 1903

Back to Seattle's Oldest Bars

Wikipedia dates the Virginia Inn to "approximately 1908," but their web site claims they were established 1903. The building was constructed in 1901 and and I have found a bar listed in Polk guides at this address, owned by William Herdmon, from at least 1907 to 1913, so until I see a starting date from a primary source or historian, 1903 seems most likely.
