Bellevue - “City in a Park”
The City of Bellevue wasn’t always the bustling metropolis it is today. It began as a quiet rural community with little development. The area was originally settled by William Meydenbauer and Aaron Mercer, whose names are synonymous with many parts of the downtown area today. Bellevue was incorporated into King County on March 21st, 1953 as a third class city. At this time it was what most would consider a bedroom community. It wasn’t until a second bridge was opened across Lake Washington that Bellevue started to experience major growth. It has since experienced several building booms and is now one of the largest cities in Washington State. With several high rise buildings at its core, the still young City of Bellevue is now a major power house in the commercial as well as residential real estate market.
