Living in Issaquah, WA
Officially incorporated in April of 1892, Issaquah was once a small mining town considered Gilman. In the late 1890s, the mining industry of Issaquah began to dwindle as the deposits wore down. Just after one industry began to lose its steam, another moved in. Lumber companies moved into the town and started transporting lumber from Issaquah and other small nearby towns by the railroad system. Lumber was transported to large, growing communities such as Seattle. After the Great Depression ran its course through the nation and Issaquah, the prominent industries quieted down and the town remained this way for the coming years.
