Puyallup is a scenic town that emerged among hops, succulent berries, and the beautiful flowers of the local bulb farmers. Pioneer hop king and champion of the Oregon Trail, Ezra Meeker, planned the city in 1877, giving it it's unique name. The livelihood for many local residents during the early years was primarily agriculture. Through many years of development, Puyallup has transformed to a booming scenic community with an interesting and profound history.
Ezra Meeker platted the town of Puyallup in 1890, but is that the beginning of Puyallup? We've discovered some information about the Puyallup Indians as well.
The Forming of the the Puyallup Valley
this natural wonderland (now called the Puyallup Valley) formed between
two great mountain ranges, long before the dawn of recorded history,
came a race of people, believed to have migrated from Asia some 15,000
years ago across a land bridge that disappeared as the glaciers melted
further and the oceans rose. In time, these people spread throughout
the two continents. Since 1492, when Columbus found them on the island
of San Salvadore, they have been known as Indians (Columbus believed
he had found India).
