Incorporated in 1892, Issaquah still offers the charm, setting and lifestyle of a small town. The city is committed to preserving its heritage and natural surroundings, while managing a careful plan for growth and business opportunity.

With a current population exceeding 30,000, Issaquah continues to plan for and support positive growth. Its location has made the city an attractive consideration for regional, national and international businesses. It is located approximately 17 miles east of downtown Seattle and eight miles from Bellevue and Redmond. It is located at the intersection of I-90 and SR900, which affords commuters easy access to neighboring communities. Approximately 40 percent of the state's population is located within a 40-mile radius of Issaquah.

Growth
Once a small coal mining town, Issaquah has grown into a thriving modern community. Many businesses have been drawn to the community, and Issaquah is already home to some of the world's largest corporations, as well as numerous small and innovative industries. Costco's international headquarters is located in Issaquah and Microsoft owns 63 acres of commercial property in the City. In addition to these well-known names, Issaquah is home to Boehm's Candies, the Village Theatre and a Darigold dairy plant.

Landmarks
Thriving businesses rely on quality places, and Issaquah boasts a beautiful setting nestled in the Issaquah Alps and proximate to many outdoor adventures. Despite its rapid growth in recent years, Issaquah has been able to maintain its friendly small town feel and links to the past. Successful efforts include purchase and restoration of the Pickering Barn, constructed in 1887. Today, the barn is used for public events such as wedding receptions and the Issaquah Farmers Market. The City also partnered in the purchase and restoration of the Hailstone Feedstore, and partnered with the Historic Society to restore and activate a historic trolley line within the community.
