Clyde Hill


On September 29, 1882, Patrick Downey, an Irish immigrant, homesteaded a 160-acre tract of land on the southern slope of Clyde Hill. He was the first known settler in present-day Clyde Hill.



The City of Clyde Hill has the unique distinction of spectacular views of Lake Washington, Mount Rainer, the Olympic Mountains, the Cascade Mountain range and the Seattle or Bellevue skyline from its many higher elevations. The City's park-like towering evergreens and a lush profusion of northwestern foliage on public and private property are the pride of its friendly citizens and a delight to visitors.
