About Duvall, WA
The Snoqualmie originally called the area that would become Duvall home. They lived in the region for centuries living off of the abundance of the Puget Sound region of Washington. The area has always been rich in Salmon and a climate well suited for agriculture. In 1855, the United States Government and the Native Tribes of Puget Sound reached a deal that ceded all of the native’s lands to the newly formed Washington Territory. This treaty is known as the Treaty of Point Elliot. Following this treaty, white settlers began pouring into the area seeking their claim
of the region’s abundance.
The coming settlers sought to exploit the abundance of timber to make a living. The first settlers who lived where the town of Duvall would be located were Francis and James Duvall. They were homesteaders in 1871. In the early 1900’s various railroads flooded the area and the population of the region boomed. The railroad that most impacted the town was the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railroad. The
completion of the railroad caused a neighboring town to have some of its buildings relocated into the community. After the railroads came to Puget Sound, the settlers had a market for their goods and the region expanded.
Today the population is roughly 8,000 people. In 2008, the town re-invested in itself in order to capitalize on the tourism in the region. The community benefits from its proximity to Seattle. The community is only a 30-minute car ride away from the major city.
