The Junction got its name because it was built at the intersection of two streetcar lines. When West Seattle was annexed in 1907 an additional streetcar line was extended down to Fauntleroy. Where the line ended at Fauntleroy was called “Endolyne” (end-of-the-line). Where the Fauntleroy line #2 met the tracks of the streetcar heading north to the Admiral neighborhood – the junction of the two rapidly grew to a small business district. The Junction name stuck. Today it is the business heart of West Seattle and a gathering place for community events and the summer farmer’s market.
