MERCER ISLAND


MERCER ISLAND in history

Settled between 1870 and 1880 by the “Mercer brothers�, the island was originally a haven to pick berries, hunt, and fish. The large family settled on the northwest peak, near where a large resort was later built by C. C. Calkins in 1889. As the population grew, so did the settlement. The then-business district, which was located between the McGilvra neighborhood and Luther Burbank Park, developed and boomed local ecommerce. The island continued to boom, urging the necessity of a permanent, Seattle connection. The East Channel Bridge was built in 1928, connecting Bellevue to the island and the Lacey V Murrow Memorial Bridge was built in 1940. In 1989, a second bridge was built, named the Homer M Hadley Memorial Bridge, to accommodate additional traffic. After a tragic incident, the Lacey V Murrow Memorial Bridge was rebuilt and together, these bridges make the Interstate-90 floating bridges connecting Seattle, Mercer Island, and the Eastside.


MERCER ISLAND today

Fully committed to community and family-values, Mercer Island hosts a plethora of celebrations throughout the year, including several Parent’s Night Outs, Summer Celebration, Art Uncorked, seasonal Farmer’s Markets, Mostly Music in the Park, Mercer Island Half-Marathon, and Seafair Hydroplane Races alongside the Blue Angels Airshow. The Downtown Business District comprises much of the island’s shopping and eating amenities, though there is a south end shopping center as well located near Pioneer Park. Several clubs live around the island, including the Mercer Island Country Club and the Mercer Island Beach Club. Mercer Island schools are consistently rated among the best schools in the state. Education is highly regarded, with an emphasis on innovative learning, technology, and attainable challenges. Beautiful neighborhoods and a wonderfully maintained parks system embrace a high quality of life. Spend weekends lounging on the banks of Luther Burbank Park, try out a new downtown eatery, visit local markets, or take a drive along the water. Head across the lake to Seattle or Bellevue, both only a few minutes’ drive.
