Since 1970, Seattle has established seven historic districts: Ballard Avenue; Columbia City; Fort Lawton; Harvard-Belmont; International District; Pike Place Market; and Pioneer Square. The appearance and historical integrity of structures and public spaces within each district are regulated by a citizens board and/or the Landmarks Preservation Board in accordance with processes and criteria established by City ordinance.

Some historic districts also overlap with other special review and approval processes. This section provides a brief history, boundary map, ordinance link, answers to frequently asked questions (FAQs), guidelines, instructions and printable Certificate of Approval forms and guidelines for each district.

Each historic district page provides meeting schedules and agendas.
