#101. Bellevue - Post World War II Years
Published 2014, 127pp
In just a few generations, Bellevue has grown from a small farming town into an important urban center and economic hub, with the foundations for this success being laid in the two decades following World War II. Bellevue became the primary commercial center for the vibrant new communities of the 1950s-60s. Families flocked to the shiny subdivisions, with new schools, shopping centers, churches and parks springing up right behind. But it was strong political, business and civic leadership that kept Bellevue from being just another sprawling suburb. As business began to push outward from Seattle, Bellevue was able to grow gracefully and preserve its sense of place. Within the pages of this book are photographs and documents from Eastside Heritage Center’s extensive collection, illustrating Bellevue’s mid-century history as an all-American suburb.

#108. Hunts Point
Published 2011, 81pp
Michael Luis

Hunts Point, on the eastern shore of Lake Washington, has grown from a small community of summer cabins into one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Washington. Once on the periphery of the region, it now sits at the center of a vibrant and exciting metropolis. Two things have remained constant from the time of the first permanent residents, over 100 years ago: a beautiful sylvan setting and a strong sense of identity and community. Commissioned by the Town of Hunts Point, this book traces the history of one of Washington’s most unique places to live.
