Washington began in 1912 when David Whitcomb, Sr. purchased the
original 320 acres. Mr. Whitcomb was desirous of country living
and developed his community by insisting on deed restrictions of
two-acre minimum parcels with large setbacks. Nearby development
in the early 1950’s threatened to incorporate Woodway’s
lands so a grass roots effort established a fourth class city which
provided development protection and independence as a community.
These historical beginnings continue to guide present day policies.
