Green Lake Elementary was located at Sunnyside Avenue North and North 65th Street.


The Seattle Public School District's Supervising Architect, James Stephen (1858-1938), designed 11 wood-frame schools in the city between 1902-1908; these included Green Lake, Interbay, John B.Allen, Interlake, Madrona, John B. Hay, Seward, Bagley, Latona, Stevens and Coe Schools. Green Lake Elementary was erected during the 1900-1910 period, when Seattle's population skyrocketed, and building rates, particularly from 1907-1910 built steadily to satisfy those relocating to the Puget Sound region.

Building Notes

An article in the Seattle Daily Times of 05/25/1901 stated: "Architect James Stephen has called for bids for the construction of the new Green Lake school house, to consist of twelve rooms, on a brick foundation." (See "Building Notes," Seattle Daily Times, 05/25/1901, p. 26.)


The Green Lake Elementary School fell to the wrecking ball in 1986.
