SEATTLE HISTORY - HISTORY OF SEATTLE WASHINGTON WA

Seattle HistorySeattle History - But once this city, Seattle, was flooded out of its original location in the 1850’s and, it….shifted. The land shifted that is to where it is today.During World War I it became a large industrial center and the city began to prosper and grow.

In 1960 Boeing Airline Corporation moved into the area and employed at least one out of every five residents that were of working age. That is more than the majority of Seattle’s workforce. This led to continued growth and prosperity in the area.

During the 1990’s Seattle consistently was to hit the tops of the lists as one of the most desirable places to live in America. They took this honor very seriously and continued to improve the way of life in the city and surrounding areas. With such huge economic boosts to the area and huge corporations such as Microsoft and internet shopping site biggie Amazon.com moving into the city many people come to the area to live and work. It also brought a small but troublesome problem to the area. That was traffic and its troubles and solutions were brought to the forefront. Tons and tons of traffic that no one had expected and they really didn’t know how to deal with it.

In 2001 an earthquake hit the Seattle Area in the month of February and scared a lot of the local residents. Now the city continues to grow and boom. Traffic is still a nuisance, but they got used to it as most large cities do. The city has so much to offer residents and tourists alike.

Seattle was named after a Native American Chief named Seath and with all of their hearts the people of the city of Seattle welcome you and wish you to return again and again. We’re sure that you will love your stay in this fine city.
