Des Moines, WA - “The Waterland City”
Des Moines, Washington is a quiet, relaxing city located on the eastern shore of Puget Sound, midway between Seattle and Tacoma, Des Moines' history dates from about 1867. The City was named after the Des Moines City Improvement Company, which was the original development company that came to the area from Iowa in 1887.
The Duwamish and Muckleshoot Indian Tribes used to come to Des Moines following the spawning salmon down the many tributaries and also to comb the Puget Sound beaches for clams. Food and recreation were the main attractions in the 1920's and 1930's. Des Moines Beach Park and Salt Water Park were developed and have attracted many from around the area to enjoy the myriad of amazing views and relaxing beaches. During and after World War II, the population grew and businesses boomed, leading to formal incorporation as a City in 1959 and the eventual construction of a marina and pier which continues to attract year round visitors and seasonal residents.
