The Roosevelt neighborhood was originally part of the town of Ravenna in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s as growth in the area pushed northward of the University of Washington and nearby Green Lake. After President Theodore Roosevelt’s death in 1919 the community renamed 10th Avenue in his honor. The area between Lake City Way to the east and Ravenna Boulevard to the west changed its name to the Ravenna District in 1927 after a naming contest was held. The advent of the automobile age saw significant growth of the business district in Roosevelt and that continued as Interstate 5 was built forming the new western border of the neighborhood. Today Roosevelt is known for its lively commercial district along 65th Street and the intersection with Roosevelt Way, which offers a number of shops, restaurants and retailers. Housing in Roosevelt is a mixture of condos, townhouses and single family homes with prices starting around $350k for a condo, $450k for a townhouse and $550k for single family homes.
