Once upon a time there were just trees, lots of trees, as far as the eye could see, and three imposing mountains keeping watch over it all.  But things were about to change in 1862 as David Mowery and Lyman Andrews blazed their way through the native woods on a surveying mission near today’s Issaquah.  They discovered coal.

With grit and determination, miners began getting the coal out of its forever resting places and with even more sweat, shipped it to Seattle.  So it went until 1887, when the railroad finally arrived to carry vast amounts more per day to market.  During the same years, logging kept pace with coal mining production and the little town continued to grow.

The soil was rich, fertile and tillable, and just right for hops.  So the town exploited its opportunities on all three fronts for several decades until an insect invasion killed the hops, forests grew thinner and more distant, and coal demand fell as petroleum became available.

But farmers still had good land, and it grew good grass, and grass is good for dairy cows.  So the town economy once again adjusted to the new norm and became the principle milk supplier to Seattle.  The cows must have been very contented and peaceful since this robust town that had incorporated back in 1892, added only 255 residents in the 50 years between 1900 and 1950.

It was during the Boeing boom time in the 1960’s, the opening of the second Lake Washington Bridge, Microsoft’s Eastside expansion, and I-90 upgrading that Issaquah really began to grow again.  The City coped with a 316% population increase between 1960 and 1990.  City planners were trying to look to the future, while other interests were trying to maintain the status quo of the old days.  But neither group could have envisioned the changes yet to impact quaint Issaquah, for between 2000 and 2011, population nearly tripled again to some 31,037 folks.  This time, however, Issaquah has more than proven itself deserving of the confidence shown by all the new residents.  This City has come of age while preserving visible homage to its rough and tumble past.  It’s not just marketing when we say Issaquah is truly the authentic face of the great Northwest.

The main street of Issaquah is pretty much the same as it has been for colorful decades, and the locals prefer to leave it that way even if it takes a few minutes longer to go through town during rush hour.  You might even have time to dash in to a store and pick up a sale item before the light changes!

The City has a very strong health care system in place for the community, a great education emphasis, upscale shopping and dining, and award-winning neighborhoods, all while staying in touch with local traditions and home town values.

There is so much to see and do here, with great options for all interests, for individuals and for families.  The attached videos help capture the flavor of the Salmon Festival, Cougar Mountain Zoo, Issaquah Salmon Hatchery, Gilman Village, paragliding, hiking, the XXX Drive-In, Railroad Depot Museum, and Boehms Candies.

Even geologists have had a good time here.  After close examination, they determined that the three mountains surrounding Issaquah; Cougar Mountain, Squak Mountain, and Tiger Mountain are, in fact, the sole surviving mountains from a geologic time pre-dating the entire Cascade Mountain range.

Today’s residents lean heavily toward the computing and engineering fields, with executive managers in ample numbers as well.  The high patents applied for rate among professionals is a good indicator of the creative talent here.

Issaquah has also been discovered by an ever-growing number of seniors as an ideal active retirement area with a very enjoyable, temperate climate.  At the same time, more and more companies are choosing to locate in the wonderful business climate here. 

ISS – A – KWA, if you can say it, you will love it here!  Stop by for a visit, or for a lifetime --- we’ll leave the light on for you.
