A Brief History of Bellevue

Original home of the Coast Salish tribes, the Puget Sound area, including Bellevue, was woodland where the Duwamish and Snoqualmie peoples hunted and fished. Europeans began settling the area in the 1800s, and named the area Bellevue, for “beautiful view” in French.

At that time settlers began to mine the land and log Bellevue’s forests, transforming the area to a farming community. In 1940 the Lake Washington Floating Bridge was completed, connecting Bellevue to Seattle. New businesses emerged and new residents came to call Bellevue and additional towns on the Eastside home.

The City of Bellevue incorporated in 1953 and started annexing adjoining areas. Once considered a suburb of Seattle, today Bellevue is known as a sophisticated city in its own right, and a center for technology and retail.
