Issaquah was incorporated on April 29, 1892. It was initially a tiny mining town, which has changed noticeably both in appearance and economically. It was developed to service the mining industry on Squak & Cougar mountain.  Issaquah originally began as the town of Gilman, Washington. It was soon realized that Issaquah could potential to support the growing lumber industry in the area. Over the years, the Boeing Company provided the majority of employment, soon to be followed by Microsoft and other tech companies.  Costco’s global headquarters is now established in Issaquah.  Other large Issaquah employers are Siemens Medical Solutions, Boehm’s candies, and of course Darigold.  On a personal note, Issaquah has a lively live music scene at some of the local establishments, and is famous for it’s Salmon Days festival in October.
