Incorporated in 1999, Sammamish rests comfortably in the embrace of Washington state’s famous natural beauty. The name Sammamish is derived from two Native American words: Samena – hunter and mish – people. Historically an area of timber and agricultural activities, Sammamish now boasts many of the finest residential areas in the Puget Sound region set in an environment of green spaces, including wetlands and community parks.
The residential community is located on the eastern shore of Lake Sammamish, with Redmond to the north and Issaquah to the south. Sammamish has long been considered to be excellent for families with its award winning school systems and the emphasis on organized youth activities.
