About Miners Landing
Miners Landing is located on Pier 57 on Seattle’s historic waterfront. On August 17, 1896,
the SS Portland docked near the site of what is now the pier. On board was a ton of gold,
brought back from the Yukon by 68 lucky prospectors. The landing of the Portland made
headlines across the world, triggering the Klondike gold rush and turning Seattle into a
boomtown. Over the next century, Pier 57 was a shipping terminal and then used for fish
processing before being acquired by the Port of Seattle. The Griffith family officially
acquired Pier 57 during the early 1980s, which they still own and operate to this date. The
pier has become the site of multiple beloved Seattle attractions, including great eateries such
as The Crab Pot and the FishermanÅs Restaurant, as well as The Seattle Great Wheel. Wings
Over Washington is its most recent addition.
