By The Decade

For Redmond's Centennial in 2012, we created the Centennial Chronicle that showed the highlights from Redmond's history starting with the first settlers in the 1870's, up to today. Read how the town grew from a few homesteads in the woods, into one of the largest cities in King County. The timelines were created by our founder Naomi Hardy, and by Nokomis President Alexa Munoz. Below is a list of each issue of the Chronicle.

 

Redmond incorporated as a city on December 31, 1912 when the birth of Ernest Alexander Adams brought the city’s population to 300, the number required by State law. The driving force behind incorporation was the ability to tax liquor sales – the funds of which were needed to finance a waterworks system.

 

“Redmond was founded by true pioneers, men and women who came up the Sammamish River to a beautiful, yet untamed wilderness. We have been pioneering ever since – first logging and farming, now microchips and bio-engineering, while in the future we look towards a diverse economy with businesses thriving in both the downtown and Overlake.”

Redmond Mayor John Marchione
