    The Eagle Block: A subtle star among Ballard's pristine Victorian buildings
    Before Ballard was a hipster exclave made of ironically crunchy dive bars, it was a fishing village made of sincerely crunchy dive bars, a separate town from Seattle altogether. Settled in the 1850s, Ballard quickly became known for its fishing and timber jobs based out of Salmon Bay-as well the large number of Scandinavian immigrants who were lured to the area by these jobs.
