This tiny residential area in northwest Bellevue makes up about one square mile between Highway 520 and the hustle and bustle of downtown Bellevue. It is an ideal location for people who want a quiet neighborhood that has easy access to highways and an urban center. And, due to zoning laws, the plots of land tend to be large and the houses new and spacious.
The first settler to claim land in the area that would become Clyde Hill was Patrick Downey, who in 1882 began clearing trees and farming crops like wheat, oats, potatoes, and strawberries. At this time, there were only about 20 families in the whole Bellevue region. Word of prosperity spread, and by the end of the century there were a whopping 254 people! The neighborhood wasn’t named until 1947, when the need for a more specific term for the region was needed at community club meetings. The unofficial term “Nanny-goat Hill” wasn’t quiet what they were looking for. Instead, they chose to name the hill after its main thoroughfare, Clyde Road. It has a slightly more urban sound, don’t you think?
