Prentis Frazier was a prominent Seattle businessman and frequent contributor to Seattle’s weekly black-oriented newspaper The Northwest Enterprise.
Prentis Frazier was an active member of the Republican Party and a member and generous contributor to the First African Methodist Episcopal Church. He always lived in the Central Area, residing the last ten years of his life at 410 23rd Avenue E. When the gully behind his home was designated a mini-park, relatives and neighbors recommended it be named for him because of his contribution to the community as a philanthropist and business entrepreneur. In 1983, the Seattle Parks and Recreation Department changed the name of the 0.3 acre Harrison Street Mini Park to the Prentis Frazier Park. —HistoryLink
