Lake Washington: The Eastside

From Kirkland through Bellevue to Kennydale, Lake Washington has shaped and defined the communities that hug its eastern shore for nearly 150 years. Cities on the lake’s east side evolved from native Villages into homesteads, farms and mining settlements by the 1880s as pioneer families immigrated to Washington. With the advent of the innovative Lake Washington Floating Bridge in 1940, the wooden ferries that plied their trade on the lake faded into memory, and the eastern shore changed from a rural landscape of strawberry farms and horse trails to the upscale urban towns and neighborhoods evident today. This program explores the story of the development of cities and industry East of Lake Washington. Appropriate for all ages. (PowerPoint Presentation)
