Overview

This compact, colorful volume introduces the history of Bellevue, Washington's fifth largest city and unofficial capital of the state's high-tech sector. Far from being a "bedroom community," Bellevue is a vibrant metropolitan center in its own right. The community has pursued a strategy of innovative urban development and social diversification since its incorporation in 1953, and its parks, environmental quality, and growth management policies have been hailed as national models. Bellevue Timeline has been designed as a companion to the popular Seattle and King County Timeline as part of Bellevue's "50Fest" celebration. Alan J. Stein is a History Link staff historian and author of Safe Passage: The Birth of Washington's State Ferries, 1951-2001.
