Bothell is a community north of Lake Washington
along the Sammamish River on I-405 between King County
and Snohomish County
The Bothell area was originally swampy, heavily forested and inhabited by the Simump Tribe. In the early 1870's, white settlers came to this area seeking homesteads. In the spring of 1889, David C. Bothell and his wife, Mary Ann, filed the first plat in what was to become the City of Bothell. The town was incorporated in 1909, some 20 years later. Lumber and shingle production fueled the early local economy. Today the city features 23 parks. The Bothell Historical Museum is a popular tourist attraction. Bothell is part of the Seattle-Bellevue-Everett, WA metro area.
