Several prominent Seattle-area residents, chief among them Methodist preacher Daniel Bagley, saw the siting of this University as a chance to add to the city's prestige.They were able to convince early founder of Seattle and member of the territorial legislature Arthur A.Denny of the importance of Seattle winning the school.
When no site emerged, the legislature, encouraged by Denny, relocated the university to Seattle in 1858.
In 1861, scouting began for an appropriate 10 acres (4 ha) site in Seattle to serve as the campus for a new university.
Arthur and Mary Denny donated eight acres, and fellow pioneers Edward Lander and Charlie and Mary Terry donated two acres to the university at a site on Denny's Knoll in downtown Seattle.
This tract was bounded by 4th and 6th Avenues on the west and east and Union and Seneca Streets on the north and south.
