Kenmore, WA

Kenmore, WA

Kenmore was still a huge dense forest for many years while its neighboring cities, Bothell and Woodinville, were being bought and developed into communities by investors. Finally, in 1889, a young married couple moved from the small town of Kenmore, Canada to the Puget Sound and bought the forested land; he decided to give this new community the same name as his home town.

In the beginning, Kenmore was just a slab of land with a mill, a cookhouse, and a few bunkhouses for the workers. Soon enough, small homes began being built around the town’s intersection, bridge, and creek. In 1919, a store was built at the Kenmore crossroads and the first service station was installed the following year. The city was finally incorporated in 1998, making it the newest city in King County.

Kenmore’s population currently sits at over 20,000 people, and there are approximately 8,000 households within the city limits. The city is served by the Northshore School District, which includes 4 high schools, 6 middle schools, and 20 elementary schools. There are also 3 special academies available to residents.
