Hunts Point is truly an idyllic community - from its leisurely beginnings until this very day - a one of a kind haven.

Leigh Hunt, who was an early 1870’s resident of neighboring Yarrow Point, purchased Hunts Point in order to cut some trees impeding his view.  Years later, a Seattle group found the site delightful for leisure time picnics and summer camping, and subsequently acquired the point.  Vacation homes were built and the camaraderie of this congenial community began.

Indeed, it was a place to live ‘the good life’, with tennis courts and amenities.  The area was known for its elaborate dinner parties and social gatherings as well as its social welfare conscience.  Residents came to be a very closely-knit group, doing things together for their mutual welfare and often just to have fun.

Interestingly, when the cut was made between Lake Washington and Puget Sound, the newly exposed lake bed had to be purchased by individual property owners.

Ground breaking hydroplane owner, Stan Sayres, once lived on Hunts Point and had a boathouse where he moored his boats.  On June 26, 1950, Stan’s Slo-Mo-Shun IV established the first of several water speed records, and put Seattle in the hydroplane spotlight.

Both Points faced developers’ expansion desires with equal apprehension, leading to the incorporation of Hunts Point in 1955.

Scarcely 186 acres, Hunts Point has virtually the same population today as in 1960.  In 2010, 394 residents occupied 151 households, and like Yarrow Point, both education and income levels are significantly above the norm.

Hunts Point now shares care taking of the donated Wetherill Nature Preserve with Yarrow Point.  There’s convenient access with parking from the Hunts Point side.

The first long ago summer time visitors to Hunts Point probably would be gratified by the way current residents have succeeded in preserving the original charm, sylvan beauty, and most of all the community spirit.

 

From The Office Of The Mayor
March 27, 2013

“I appreciate all of your work to document the towns and cities where you work. I have been mayor for 15 years and enjoyed producing some history books and DVD’s to capture a special moment in time. We try our best to keep it this way.”



“The town of Hunts Point is a small, independent community of about 400 residents, established in 1955 to control town zoning regulations. The community and their zoning has not changed much in 50 years. Lots are large and trees are protected. The residents socialize together and have celebrated ‘Clean Up Day’ every May since 1920 with a full day of outdoor events and camaraderie.”



Thank You,
Fred McConkey
Mayor – Hunts Point
