1888 map of King County in the
Washington state archives

167 years ago, the Oregon Territorial Legislature approved the creation of King County, on December 22, 1852.

Why Oregon? Because Congress didn't establish the Washington Territory until March 1853.

King county predates Washington Territory and Washington State (1889).
