Woodinville, Washington is a small community in the Sammamish Valley located between Seattle and Bellevue. With easy access to highways and transportation, Woodinville is an ideal location to stay in while exploring the Puget Sound region.
Woodinville began as a logging town in the late 19th century, then in the early 20th century became a farming community and finally developing into a suburb of Seattle being incorporated as a city in 1933.
In 1871, Ira Woodin and his wife Susan moved from Seattle and up the Sammamish River to build a cabin, log timber and farm cattle. Gradually a town formed around the cabin which became the first school and Post Office, with Susan Woodin as Postmaster. The first general store was founded by Ira Woodin and his son-in-law Thomas Sanders.
