Redmond is located in the northwestern part of Washington, United States, a city under King County. This city lies in the upper east of Seattle, with a distance of 16 miles (26 km) on the Sammamish River. Renowned as a horticulturist, angling, and logging focus as it was established in 1871. It was first called Salmonberg after the copious neighborhood fish. It was renamed for Luke McRedmond, a nearby rancher and its first postmaster. Arriving in the area in 1871, he then decided to file ownership in the Sammamish Valley, where the land was fertile, and the waters were plentiful. The city developed gradually until the mid-1960s when the fulfillment of a bridge over Lake Washington started urban extension in the Sammamish Valley. During the 1970s, a few high-innovation ventures, including Microsoft and Nintendo, built up their central station in Redmond.
