About Redmond Old Town

Redmond’s Old Town is the central location from which the city grew, beginning in 1891, and includes the majority of the city’s designated landmarks including: Justice White House (1889), Bill Brown Building (1913), Odd Fellows Hall (1903), Lodge Hall (1903), Redmond State Bank (1911), Stone/O.A. Wiley House (1916), Redmond Trading Company (1905/08), Bill Brown Garage (1920), and other historic structures. From April through September, Old Town features narrated walking tours.

Redmond and Squak Valley is rich with history. For thousands of years, Native people lived, fished, hunted, and gathered food and resources in the Squak Valley and along the shores of water bodies such as Lake Sammamish. The Seattle, Lake Shore, and Eastern Railways extended to Redmond in 1888 and constructed a depot on Leary Way, additionally housing a post office relocated from the McRedmond homestead.

Today, Redmond’s Historic Core is a place full of unique treasures including a variety of eateries, pubs, shops, entertainment, and parks.  The City of Redmond celebrates its history through events, heritage tourism, and economic vitality. To help support long-lasting vibrancy in Redmond’s valued Historic Core, and to support local businesses, artists are invited to consider creative techniques that blend the old and new and help new audiences recognize and connect with Redmond’s Historic Core.
