About Shoreline, WA
Shoreline, Washington got its start in 1890 as the neighborhood of Richmond Beach. The area located on Puget Sound was developed in anticipation of the building of the Great Northern Railway in 1891. Like many communities in the vicinity that sprung up at this time, the promise of the railway’s arrival was enticing enough for land developers to grab land in the region of Seattle. In the early 20 th century, the Seattle-Everett Interurban Streetcar Line connected the new settlement to the city of Seattle. In addition to the Streetcar Line, a newly paved road also connected the two cities. These connections to Seattle caused the population to grow immediately. The city’s name originally comes from the school district that appeared there in 1944. The district went from the shores of Puget Sound to the shores of Lake Washington and the line of the city limits of Seattle to the line of the county limits of Snohomish County. The town was not officially incorporated until 1995 after remaining unincorporated for nearly 35 years.
Today the town of Shoreline has a population of 53,000. This makes it the 20th largest city in the state. Residents benefit from its shared border with the city of Seattle. The city ranks in the top 20% of all cities in Washington for per capita income, making it one of the more affluent cities in the state. Residents rave about the public transit accessibility. The town is connected to the metropolitan region by three transit agencies including King County Metro, Community Transit, and Sound Transit. The city also cares about its beauty. Every year it dedicates community funds to the installation of public art. The city is home to over 40 installations already. Additionally, the city hosts over 15 annual festivals every year that brings visitors from all over the metro area. The local school district is one of the top districts in the state as well.
