Local Immigrant Population*

3000

*Immigrant Population is an estimated sum of the number of naturalized Americans from this country and citizens from this country living in the Seattle Metro Area under any sort of immigration visa.  It does not count the American offspring or descendants of immigrants from this country, which can go back many generations and account for large numbers of people.  1,000 is the default number when we don’t have a better count.

Languages:

German.

Notes:

Germans from around the world, especially Russia, started coming to the Pacific NW in big numbers in the late 1880’s. They continued to come and today many Germans and German-Americans live in Seattle. Cultural, language, and social organizations are active throughout Seattle.  In Leavenworth, WA, the entire town is decorated in Bavarian style with food and festivities to match.  Bring out the brews and brats.  To connect with Germans in Seattle, try the German Heritage Society or the German Club at UW. Prost!
