Unsettled~Resettled: Seattle’s Hunt Hotel

March 2016, Volume 66, Issue 3

On Monday, February 22, 2016, for the 74th anniversary of the Day of Remembrance commemorating Japanese American incarceration during World War II, the Japanese Cultural & Community Center of Washington (JCCCW) unveiled its first permanent exhibit: Unsettled~Resettled: Seattle’s Hunt Hotel.

This exhibit sheds light on the post-war era (1945-1959) of the Japanese Language School when the buildings were converted into a temporary hostel and recalls the experiences of families and individuals who lived there.

The project is a result of over a decade of research and features a historic site marker, art installation, exhibit catalogue, online archive, walking tour and traveling art show.

The exhibit is open to the public at:

Japanese Cultural & Community Center of Washington
1414 S. Weller Street, Seattle, WA 98144
Free admission. Monday – Friday 10am – 5pm.
