The seven hills of Seattle is an unofficial designation of several hills that historians claim the city of Seattle was built on and around. The name comes from the similar tradition in several other cities, most notably Rome and Constantinople.
There is no firm consensus on precisely which hills constitute the seven hills of Seattle. Walt Crowley considered the following the "main candidates":
Yesler Hill – presently in the First Hill neighborhood
Second Hill or Renton Hill – both names have passed out of common usage; it referred to an area roughly centered at 18th Avenue and Madison Street, and in present-day parlance would be considered to constitute upper Capitol Hill and upper First HillMap of the city of Seattle, The New Encyclopedic Atlas & Gazetteer of the World, 1917 Edition, P.
