Bothell History

The Native American tribe known as the Sammamish were the original inhabitants of the region. The Puget Sound War in 1856 forced them to relocate. European settlements grew up in this region with the arrival of Columbus S. Greenleaf and George R. Wilson in 1870. Gradually a store, a school, and a sawmill were built in this area. George Brackett, one of the settlers, sold 80 acres of land to David Bothell in 1885. The first postmaster, who had purchased land from Bothell, decided to name the town after him. Logging remained the primary industry until the early 20th century. Bothell was incorporated on April 14, 1909. Post World War II, development speeded up in Bothell.
