Clyde Hill, Washington

First settled in 1882, a 160-acre tract was claimed by Patrick Downey. He logged his homestead, then farmed the land and eventually in 1894, subdivided eighty acres on the north side of his claim. Being further inland than the surrounding waterfront communities of Medina, Hunts Point and Yarrow Point, Clyde Hill was slower to be populated and remained in farming use longer.
