Facility:Chief Sealth's Home and Grave
Description:Discover Puget Sound's roots from the days when there were many firs and no freeways. Visit Suquamish, where the tribal chief for whom Seattle was named lived communally in what amounted to a mansion of the early 1800s: a beachfront longhouse reputedly more than 500 feet long. Today, Chief Sealth is buried in a small cemetery just up the hill, with a glimpse through tall, guardian evergreens of the swirling waters of narrow Agate Passage.

This is a really interesting site. I didn't
know that Chief Sealth had converted to Catholicism a few years before his death, so he is buried in a Catholic cemetery. It's an interesting "in" to discuss religion and the Native Americans. Prep your own materials, as there's usually no tour here.
