About Clyde Hill, WA
Clyde Hill is located in King County, Washington. The area known as the Eastside Region was once a part of a vast territory controlled by various Native American tribes for centuries. As with most of American history, the westward expansion of white settlers from the east displaced the native populations over time. In this region of Washington, that time came in 1855 when the U.S. government signed the Treaty of Point Elliot with the various native tribes in the area. This treaty removed the natives and allowed for the settlement of frontier families and prospectors to take place.
Clyde Hill was first settled in 1882 by Patrick Downey, an immigrant from Ireland. Downey built a house and began clearing the land. He was able to row across Lake Washington whenever he needed to get to Seattle. Downey is given credit for planting the first strawberries in the region, which would eventually become one of the things the area was most well known for. Downey’s strawberries were sold in Seattle and the people of the city loved them. Within a few years several other families had settled on the hillside and Downey had split the land into severalsmall acre plats. The city grew as its neighbor, Bellevue did. Both cities benefited tremendously from the completion of the railroad in the early 1900’s, which connected Seattle to the rest of the country.
The population of Clyde Hill is around 3,000 people. It is known as one of the mostaffluent towns in the entire state of Washington. The per capita income of the community ranks it fourth in Washington State.
Things to do
Clyde Hill is primarily residential so residents and visitors have to look outside of the community for things to do. That shouldn’t discourage though, because the community benefits from being located just a short distance from both Bellevue and Seattle.
In Bellevue, there are several things to do including several museums and parks. Some of the more popular museums in the area include the Museum of Flight, KidsQuest Children’s Museum, and the Cougar Mountain Zoo. All of these offer fun times for the whole family. There are many parks in the Bellevue area as well. These parks range from relaxing family parks to nature reserves. Some of the most well known are the Bellevue Botanical Garden, Bellevue Downtown Park, Cougar Mountain Regional Wildland Park, Marymoor Park, Saint Edward State Park, Lake Sammamish State Park, Squak Mountain State Park Natural Area, Poo Poo Point Trail Head, Bridle Trails State Park, and Mercer Slough Nature Park. There is also Lake Washington and Lake Sammamish, which both offer outdoor activities. Nature is a huge part of life in the Pacific Northwest and it in abundance around Bellevue.
Just across Lake Washington from Clyde Hill is Seattle. Seattle is one of the country’s top metropolitan areas. Here you will find restaurants, shopping, nightlife, and some of the most famous tourist attractions Washington has to offer, including the Space Needle and Pike’s Place Fish Market. There are endless possibilities in the city to choose from.
