Her House

Edith Macefield, 1921-2008.

Ballard, city of Seattle, WA. A woman who held her ground.

Macefield said: “I went through World War II, the noise doesn’t bother me,…They’ll get it done someday.”

Macefield’s stubbornness was cheered by Ballard residents who were tired of watching the blue-collar neighborhood disappear. Her house became a symbol of sorts.
