Event Description

Before glass towers defined the skyline and shoppers bustled across busy pavement, Bellevue was a quiet town of dirt roads and scattered homes. The first settlers from Seattle began to drift across Lake Washington in the 1860s. It would take until 1953 for Bellevue to become an incorporated city. Discover how Bellevue grew from a sleepy agricultural village to a leading Pacific Northwest metropolis, with one of the most diverse populations in the nation, at this Heritage Program presented by Eastside Heritage Center’s Education Coordinator, Jane Morton.

This presentation is a great way to be introduced to the Bellevue community for newcomers, and for longtime residents who want to better understand the history of their city.

Event Location: Mercer Slough Environmental Education Center-Douglas Fir Room (1625 118th Ave SE, Bellevue, WA 98005)
