Happy Birthday, King County

King county originally had oceanfront property
December 22, 2021 marks 169 years since King County was established in the Oregon Territory.

Why Oregon? Congress did not create the Washington Territory until March 1853.

King County originally stretched from the Cascades to the Pacific, before shrinking to the current boundaries in 1867.
