Tangletown-By Paul Dorpat cont. on historylink.org
The most important part of early Latona culture was its primary school. Soon after Seattle annexed its north end in 1891, the city school board purchased six lots for the construction of a four-room schoolhouse. In 1906, a larger frame structure was built facing 5th Avenue NE, and in 1917 a block-long brick addition was added along 42nd Street. Soon after, the original structure was razed. During the 2000-2001 school year, Latona School reopened after a year’s closure for renovation of the 1906 structure, destruction of the 1917 plant and the construction of a new addition partly on the site of the original Latona school. The new school was renamed the John Stanford International School, after the then recently deceased school superintendent. Because the Latona School is the last remaining direct link with this historic community, a activist core of former students, PTA parents, and Wallingford residents successfully lobbied to keep the historic name Latona associated both with the renovated 1906 structure and with the entire reworked campus.
Because of its proximity to Fremont, the Edgewater corner of Wallingford never developed many of its own institutions. Unlike Latona, it built no schools, meeting halls, or churches. Beginning in the mid-1890s, Edgewater – or a cow pasture nearby on Wallingford Hill – did feature the city’s first golf course. For a club house it used a pitched tent. During the 1890s, there was considerable time for golf -- several rounds of it on the three-holed course. Following the 1893 economic crash, Wallingford along with the rest of Seattle floundered at least until 1897, when the Klondike Gold Rush helped revive the greater community by making it the principal supplier and transporter for the miners heading north.

Regular Shout Out :: Bob Welch
Born and raised in Seattle, Bob moved to this neighborhood 40 years ago. He happily shuffled up the hill on a daily basis for good conversation, game of cribbage and a cold beer. He loved golf, he loved his wife and he loved life. He lived everyday of his life with a degree of enthusiasm that could be both exhausting and contagious. Bob had a youthful energy and kindness that will always stay with the people who knew him. Bob loved his friends at TangleTown all of whom he considered family. We will miss you Bob.

We will have cool merchandise for sale, great music to hear and more to benefit bands on the run.

Our goal is to bridge the world. Bringing you scratch cooking at an affordable price. All of our stocks, sauces, dressings and sides are made inhouse. Not interested in Heinz ketchup (which we serve free of charge) try our house spicy tomato jam. Or order the kalamata aioli as a side for your sandwich. We realize that not everyone eats bread, our accessories menu allows you to pick a selection of proteins to add to your salad. Favorites so far are the Fish & Chips, Fried Cauliflower, T Town Burger, Pork n Clün, Seafood Stew and Pastrami Reuben.
We have been rocking a full brunch menu since mid July and if you haven’t tried it yet then you’ve been missing out. The ancho-hollandaise on our eggs benedict is great with a bloody mary or a craft beer.
Our house-cured corned beef hash is stellar and the Pork and Clun with an egg on it while a little bit messy is amazing. Come by one of these late summer and early fall weekends.
We love families and groups of friends but sometimes our small restaurant cannot accommodate all the various demands for large table seating. It is very hard for us to accommodate groups of 8 or more we just do not have the table configuration and space. Please be patient and understanding.
TangleTown is a Public House which means that everyone is welcome. We are here to feed you, offer you libations and help you relax from your day, a place for you to meet new friends and engage with old friends. All of us at TangleTown can’t wait to see you.
