Sammamish, Washington

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.
