Seen around Seattle: Dexter Horton Building

image

Corner of 2nd Ave & Columbia St looking south. And some sunny Seattle sky up there, too!

While this building’s location is no secret, the mystery here is this: Who was Mr. Dexter Horton and why does he have a building named after him? The name, or at least a close relative’s name, may ring a bell for our new friends who came out for Tap into Georgetown: Beer, Art and History on the Banks of the Duwamish last weekend… So put your answers in the comments, if you please! Bonus points if you know the connection to Fantagraphics bookstore.
