Bellevue, Washington has numerous skyscrapers and is a metropolitan and modern community. While it wasn't until 1953 that it was incorporated. However, since then Bellevue has enjoyed rapid growth. The history of this community goes back several decades, as a milling hub, inland port, and farming hub.
In 1869, two men named Aaron Mercer and William Meydenbauer were the first white pioneers to arrive in the region of Bellevue. Mr. Mercer farmed next to what is currently called the Mercer Slough. Mr. Meydenbauer, who was a baker from Seattle, lived next to the sheltered bay for he is the namesake of. The two men sold their property and relocated elsewhere, after their property became profitable, and left behind only their names.
Close to the downtown region, a man named Isaac Bechtel Sr. purchased some property in 1882. Mr. Bechtel and his sons cleared and logged the property for the next few years. Soon other white pioneers arrived, and by 1890 farms, shingle mills, and a sawmill were established. There were also a few businesses and a school in the growing town.
A man named Mathew Sharpe, who had relocated to the region with his brothers, who were natives of Bellevue, Indiana was the first postmaster in the region. The French translation of Bellevue is beautiful view, Mr. Sharpe believed the name was equally applicable for his new home, which had beautiful views of the Cascade mountains in the east Lake Washington in the west.
The population of Bellevue was some 400 people in 1900. In 1904, the community of Bellevue was platted. In the County of King, it was a retreat for several rich families from Seattle and a hub for growing berries by this time. Since the 1890's, when homeowners purchased farmland and then transformed it into large estates, the Medina neighborhood located next to shores of the lake had been considered the Gold Coast.
In 1908, located to the south, the Beaux Arts community was established as a colony for artists. Plans were in the works for instruction and studios for such fields that included photography, weaving, ironworking, and sculpting. Although this imitative never got off the ground, some of the buildings that were constructed during this timeframe are still standing.
The population of Bellevue had increased to almost 1,500 people by 1910. Some of this growth was the result of the Tacoma company known as the Hewitt Lumber Company that employed numerous to cut timber that was in Wilburton. These logs were transported overland and then floated down Mercer Slough.
Taking a ferryboat was the only access to Seattle. The Lake Washington Ship Canal was completed in 1917, and allowed access to Puget Sound. When a local resident named William Schupp, who was the president of the American Whaling Pacific Fleet, elected to relocate the corporate headquarters to Bellevue, it brought new businesses to the community. During the off season, it was both advantageous and convenient to store these whaling vessels that were located in Meydenbauer Bay. The fresh water of the lake helped kill off the worms and barnacles, which damaged most saltwater ships.
However, farming remained the most productive industry in Bellevue. Although during the 1920's, antialien legislation prohibited most Japanese from leasing property and the majority of them relocated elsewhere, many of the early farmers were Japanese. During WW II, the few Japanese who remained lost a considerable amount of their property, when the local Japanese had to live in internment camps for the remainder of the war.
Bellevue maintained its rural environment throughout the between 1900 and 1950. Always a large success, their annual Strawberry Festival both sells produce and attracts new residents who had a desire to live in a country environment, but can still commute to their jobs in Seattle.
In 1939, Bellevue was changes into a thriving suburb from a farming community as the result of the building of the first bridge across Lake Washington. The predominant location for the majority of ferry commuters was Kirkland, which is in the north, prior to the completion of the bridge. Constructed on the shores just south of Bellevue, this new bridge allowed Bellevue to become a better location for those who commuted by automobiles. Many additional people started relocating to Bellevue following WW II.
A man named Kemper freeman, who was a developer, opened Bellevue Square, which was the first shopping center that was located on the Eastside in downtown Bellevue in 1946. This was the same location where only a few years earlier, strawberry farms had been located. This resulted in some unequalled business growth close by, which has continued well into the 1990's.
The year 1953 brought the incorporation of Bellevue, as a city. Rather than a sleepy community the city planners looked to the future of Bellevue as a flourishing city, right from the beginning. Soon, in the central business district, skyscrapers were being constructed. Several banks relocated their corporate headquarters to Bellevue, which made the community one of the wealthiest in Washington. Bellevue Square was greatly expanded, during the 1980's, and continued its role as one of the major shopping malls in the County of King.
While many of the residents of Bellevue don't have the need to travel to Seattle, the community is still a desirable place for commuters. Many successful businesses have relocated to Bellevue. Bellevue and the communities that surround it have experienced the relocation of many high-tech companies during the 1990's, which have made Bellevue a world-class hub for new business and technology.
