Brief history of the city of Redmond
Native Americans have lived in the Redmond area for more than 10,000 years. An evidence for this are the artifacts found out at the Redmond Town Center archaeological site and Marymoor Prehistoric Indian Site. The first European settlers came here in the 1870s.
Luke McRedmond filed a Homestead Act claim for land next to the Sammamish Slough on September 9, 1870. On the following year Warren Perrigo took up land close to Sammamish Slough. There was huge number of salmon living in the rivers and streams that the settlement was initially named Salmonberg.
More settlers came afterwards and after the first post office was established in 1881, the name of the community was changed to Melrose. The new name of the city was derived from the Perrigos’ successful inn, Melrose House. This fact upset McRedmond and as he became a postmaster, he successfully petitioned to get the name changed to Redmond in 1883.
Since Redmond has abundant forests and fish this provided jobs for loggers and fishermen. Therefore the demand for goods and services increased and more merchants came. The logging industry experienced significant growth in 1889 when a station was built in the center of town by Seattle Lake Shore & Eastern Railway. On December 31, 1912 Redmond reached the necessary population of 300.
Since it’s part of the Pacific Northwest territory, Redmond has a mild climate because of its latitude. It stillhas all four seasons. Summers in Redmond are usually warm and dry, sunny or partly sunny from June to September with low rainfalls. Winters are cool and wet, November is the rainiest month.
