Fremont and Wedgwood are two neighborhoods of Seattle which have completely different histories. Fremont developed along with the earliest years of the City of Seattle beginning in the 1850s; Wedgwood did not really get going until the 1940s.

But one thing the two very different neighborhoods have in common, though, is the Burke-Gilman Trail.
