Redmond, Washington

Two settler families arrived about 1870 from across Puget Sound. Fortunately for this area, Luke McRedmond was focused on building a town on Squak Slough (Sammamish River), and his fellow pioneer created an inn and a needed network of roads. Most residents were either loggers or mill workers, while those involved with fishing and hunting had close access to Squak Lake (Lake Sammamish).
