History

Ancient glaciers formed the rich basin where Redmond lies. In the 1800s, Native Americans found shelter among the dense Sammamish Valley forests, along with plentiful salmon in the Sammamish River. Loggers later poured into the area, inspiring a heyday, which brought saloons, hotels and eateries. In 1912, the City of Redmond incorporated with 300 community members.

Redmond's transportation modes evolved beyond stagecoaches and steamboats, and residents enjoyed high-quality roads. Notably, the Evergreen Point Bridge was completed in 1963, the longest floating bridge in the world.

Redmond has a tremendous commitment to the arts. The Arts Commission oversees the numerous public art displays, found indoors and outdoors throughout the city. The neighborhood also hosts the Redmond Lights poetry reading event, dedicated to works by poet laureates.

Locals gather for Redmond Derby Days, an annual event with a carnival, music and food, fireworks and the nation's largest bike race.
