Living In Clyde Hill, WA
The City of Clyde Hill is located within King County on the east side of Lake Washington. It was incorporated in 1953 in response to the 971 residents at that time wanting to control the land use development. The vast majority of Clyde Hill is zoned as single-family use except for two commercial zones, a gas station and the Queen Bee Cafe.
The City is home to four schools, Clyde Hill Elementary, Chinook Middle School which are part of the Bellevue School District and two private institutions: Bellevue Christian and Sacred Heart.
The City is relatively small, encompassing about one square mile, with a max elevation of 375 feet. It is bordered by the Cities of Medina, Bellevue, Hunts Point, Yarrow Point and Kirkland.
The City was originally homesteaded by an Irish immigrant in 1882 but gets its name from Scottish heritage, as the main road running through the community was named after the Firth of Clyde.
