Central District, Seattle
This was something I wanted, it’s something I dreamed about, it’s somewhere I wanted to be, and I am here.
Earl Lancaster has operated Earl’s Cuts in the Central District for 30 years. More than just a barber, he is a fixture of the community. When he and his neighbors learned Midtown Center was slated for demolition, they came together to find Earl a new location in the same neighborhood. Together, with the help of Capital Hill Housing and the Liberty Bank Building, Earl was able to realize his dream of a modern and beautiful space to cut hair and connect with the community.
