History

Prior to Anglo-American settlement, the Woodinville area was inhabited by the native Sammamish people.

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.[4] A town gradually built up around the cabin, which served as its first school and Post Office, with Susan Woodin as Postmaster. Woodin and his son-in-law Thomas Sanders set up the first general store.

Like other nearby towns, Woodinville began as a logging community, became a farming center in the early decades of the 20th century, and developed into a suburb of Seattle after World War II. In 1969, rock bands including Led Zeppelin and The Guess Who performed at the Seattle Pop Festival at Woodinville's Gold Creek County Park.
