Annexed Cities

Luna Park carousel
Construction of Luna Park, a grand amusement park built on piers over the Duwamish Head tide flats, began in 1906. Concern about the sale of alcohol and other vices the park would attract led many West Seattle residents to vote for annexation, figuring that Seattle would provide a higher level of law enforcement and oversight. Luna Park opened one month before West Seattle was officially annexed.
