    Redmond

    The first settlers in the Redmond area were Luke McRedmond (1820 -1898) and Warren Perrigo (1836-?). After visiting areas east of Seattle, they decided to file claims in the Sammamish Valley where the soil was rich and the waters bountiful. Immediately after filing claims they started to clear their land.

    Today, Redmond is known worldwide as a center for high technology. The home of Microsoft, Nintendo, Eddie Bauer, to name a few. The town's fame has come about only in recent times. For more than a century, Redmond was seen as just another small settlement that grew into suburbia.

    Redmond is located just east of the Lake Washington beach town of Kirkland and north of the Eastside's "downtown" city of Bellevue. Beloved for it's proximity to working at Microsoft, shopping, and recreational activities, Redmond's neighborhoods have continued to grow over the past few decades.

    The public schools in Redmond are part of the highly regarded Lake Washington School District. A number of excellent private schools are also available including the popular Overlake School.

    Redmond offers a unique blend of suburban and rural amenities and escapes. Hiking and Equestrian Trails, the Redmond Watershed Preserve, and many other quiet parks and natural areas can be found within a short drive from the area's neighborhoods and office parks. Carefully maintained athletic fields and playgrounds are also numerous, with the vast Marymoor Park is the crown jewel drawing folks from Seattle and Bellevue as well.

    Golf is also very popular on the Eastside and Redmond holds four of the area's best high-caliber courses, Willow's Run, Trilogy Gold Club at Redmond Ridge, Bear Creek Country Club and Sahalee Country Club.
