Initially a small mining town, Issaquah was originally developed to service the mining industry. The City of Issaquah was officially incorporated on April 29, 1892. As the mining deposits neared depletion in the late 1890s, other companies started to realize Issaquah’s potential to support a lucrative lumber business.
In recent decades, both Boeing and Microsoft have significantly affected Issaquah’s history, cultural development, and diverse population of over 30,000 residents through their active community participation and attraction of outside residents.
