Overview of Mill Creek

Head 20 miles northeast of downtown Seattle on Interstate 5 along the Puget Sound and you will find the charming hub of Mill Creek. A small town of more than 18,000 residents according to the U.S. Census Bureau, this warm, welcoming community is close to everything the Seattle Metropolitan Area has to offer, but still has the hometown spirit that makes so many Washington residents eager to find Mill Creek apartments for rent. With nearly a quarter of the residents under the age of 18, this community is a wonderful place to raise a family.

Living in Mill Creek, WA

There have been settlers and farmers in Snohomish County for many years, but the recent development of Mill Creek in the 20th century has garnered plenty of attention from Seattle area residents. In the 1930s the land that would become Mill Creek was purchased by Dr. Garhart, a prominent naturalist. Fascinated by the natural resources in the area, the Garhart made numerous observations of the wildlife and vegetation in Mill Creek.

However, the development of Mill Creek didn't take off until the 1970s when the Environmental Impact Statement for the Planned Residential Development prompted investigations and inspections into establishment of a bedroom community in Seattle. After years of building and development, the city of Mill Creek was incorporated and a small community began to blossom. Since then, the area has doubled in population and continues to grow.

In 2000, the city resolved to officially name the creek that runs through the town as Mill Creek even though the some locals still refer to it by its old name, Smokehouse Creek. Today, nearly all of the planned developments in the city have been built or are currently under construction. Because of its attractive amenities, the city has undergone 14 annexations ranging between two and 300 acres in size.

According to city-data.com, the leading industries in the area include manufacturing, educational, health and social services and scientific, professional and waste management services. More than half of the city's employment is in sales and office occupations.

Rentals in Mill Creek, WA and Cost of Living
