The Issaquah community derived its name from a local Native American whose name meant "the sound of birds." Coal was discovered in the area in 1862. The mining of coal increased after the railroad arrived in the city in the late 1880s, and Issaquah was officially incorporated on April 29, 1892.
Once a sleepy mining and farming community, Issaquah has become one of the fastest growing communities in Washington. The city is full of exciting attractions for all types of lifestyles, including the Historic Old Towne and Front Street, Lake Sammamish State Park, Gilman Town Hall, Cougar Mountain Zoological Park, Issaquah Depot Museum, Newcastle Beach Park, Museum of Flight, and the always popular Salmon Days.
