Episode 28: The City of Ballard

William Ballard was Captain of a small ship in Puget Sound’s mosquito fleet.  A losing coin toss left him in possession of 160 acres of land north of Seattle which came to bear his name.  A contentious battle over water left the young city of Ballard annexed into larger and more powerful neighboring Seattle.
