History

Originally a logging settlement, the area was first called "Federal Way" in 1929, when Federal Way School District #210 was created.[6] The name derived from Federal Highway U.S. 99 (now State Route 99 or Pacific Highway South), completed that decade, which ran through the area on its way from Everett and Seattle to Tacoma.[6] Federal Way High School opened in 1930, and the local Chamber of Commerce adopted the name in the early 1950s.[7] The city was incorporated on February 28, 1990.[7]
