Hi, does anyone happen to know where the apartment is/was where B. Obama's mother lived on Capitol Hill? I'm really interested in Seattle history and have been striking out on the exact address. Apparently, before the C. Hill apt. she lived at a "Laurelhurst dormitory" near UW, but I don't know exactly where that is either, or if it still exists.
Interesting inquiry. If Stanley Ann Dunham was living on Capitol Hill that means our next President Barack Obama also lived on Capitol Hill as an infant. (Interesting he is going from Capitol Hill to Capitol Hill). If the time period was from around March 1962 to at least September 1962 then Barack Obama would have been around 7 months old.
There is a possiblity if Ann signed on with UW as a student that UW Housing may have records.
Confirmed Barack Obama lived here on Capitol Hill. Document and photos to be posted soon.
Here you go,
Capitol Hill Times has now posted the article and photos.
Barack Obama: From Capitol Hill to Capitol Hill
To be exact the plot of land was lot 9. It was mentioned by a former resident it was the
second house in from the Mercer Republican corner.
Babysitter of Barack was Mary Toutonghi who now lives in Alaska. She lived right below Ann and Barack.
The name Toutonghi is listed in the city directory as residents of 516 13th Ave E, an address which is
also confirmed by the Univ. of WA as the residence given by Ann Dunham Obama when she registered.
