Settlers began to populate the eastern shore of Lake Sammamish and inland areas to the east in the 1880’s. Like much development in the Puget Sound region, people located where there was water, timber, and soon, a railroad. The epicenter of activity on the Sammamish plateau was along the entire eastern shore of the lake that supported numerous wood and shake mills and later, a notable beach resort.
Several locations almost became full-fledged towns but all eventually faded away in the fog of history along with the major lumber mills as the 1929 depression set in. Only one mill was later reestablished and went on to make WWII contributions. The Sammamish plateau proceeded to slumber peacefully for 40 years or more until housing pressure from the west came knocking.
Many new residents in the 70’s and 80’s perceived Plateau living as the ideal escape from population densities on the west side of the lake.
However, an emerging awareness that slowly became apparent to all was that since only one primary two lane road was available to handle all the higher traffic volumes, people knew they had to develop other solutions, and quickly.
Sammamish continues planning its future, and warmly welcomes you to be part of it. As we change into a modern city, though, so we remain connected to our past---always remember, ever since 1926, you can still get home to Sammamish by turning up the hill at the Gray Barn.
