History

Bothell was officially incorporated on April 14, 1909, though it has been inhabited by people of European descent since 1870. April 14 is the 104th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar (105th in leap years). ... 1909 (MCMIX) was a common year starting on Friday (see link for calendar). ...


Prior to European settlement, the Sammamish River Valley from Lake Washington to Issaquah Creek south and upstream of Lake Sammamish was inhabited by a population of as many as 200 native Americans known as the Sammamish. The Sammamish were relocated after the Puget Sound War in 1856 to reservations and non-reservation lands. The Sammamish River (usually referred to as Sammamish Slough by long-time local residents) flows for about 14 miles through north King County, Washington, draining Lake Sammamish into Lake Washington. ... The Sammamish (tsah-PAHBSH) were a group of Native Americans who lived in the Sammamish River Valley in western Washington. ... The Puget Sound War was an armed conflict that took place in the Puget Sound area of the state of Washington in 1855–56, between the U. S. Army, local militias and members of the Native American tribes of the Nisqually, Muckleshoot, Puyallup, and Klikitat. ...


In 1870, Columbus S. Greenleaf and George R. Wilson filed land claims in the area abandoned by the Sammamish near present-day Bothell, and built homes. Eight families followed over the next six years. In 1876, Canadian George Brackett bought land and began commercial logging out of a camp located on the north bank of the Sammamish River in what is now the heart of downtown Bothell. A store, school, and sawmill followed over the next several years.


In 1885, Brackett sold 80 acres to David Bothell, a settler from Pennsylvania. The town's first postmaster, who bought his property from Bothell, named the town in his honor in 1888. Later that same year, a local railroad was built through the town to transport coal from Issaquah. Issaquah is a city located in King County, Washington. ...


Bothell continued to grow as logging expanded and boat traffic brought increasing amounts of goods and passengers up and down the river. As more people moved into the area, the Army Corps of Engineers decided to dredge and straighten the river in the years shortly after Bothell's incorporation. Most boat traffic came to an abrupt end only a few years later when Lake Washington was lowered in 1917. Water transport also shifted to trucks after a brick road was built from Seattle. The logging economy declined quickly around the same time, and the local economy shifted to farming. United States Army Corps of Engineers logo The United States Army Corps of Engineers, or USACE, is made up of some 34,600 military men and women. ...


After World War II, better highways and a post-war boom brought suburban development to Bothell. These new neighborhoods and a series of annexations dramatically expanded Bothell's population from about 1000 in 1950 to over 30,000 as of 2006. Bothell was mostly a bedroom community for people working in Seattle until the 1990s when business development brought new jobs to create a regional employment center with about 20,000 jobs, many in high technology sectors such as biotechnology and software development. In 2000, a branch campus of the University of Washington opened in Bothell, co-located with Cascadia Community College.

Bothell, Washington at AllExperts (1842 words)
Prior to European settlement, the Sammamish River Valley from Lake Washington to Issaquah Creek south and upstream of Lake Sammamish was inhabited by a population of as many as 200 native Americans known as the Sammamish.
Bothell was mostly a bedroom community for people working in Seattle until the 1990s when business development brought new jobs to create a regional employment center with about 20,000 jobs, many in high technology sectors such as biotechnology and software development.
Bothell is a geographical oddity in that it straddles two counties (King County and Snohomish County).
