Puyallup Area Information
Native Americans numbered about 2,000 in what is now the Puyallup Valley in the 1830s and 1840s. The first
European settlers arrived in the 1850s. In 1877, Ezra Meeker platted a townsite and named it Puyallup after
the local Puyallup Indian tribes. By the 1880s Puyallup had become a major hop growing region and more
people flocked to the area. The town grew rapidly throughout the 1880s and the town was incorporated in 1890,
the first mayor being Ezra Meeker. The turn of the 20th century brought change to the valley with the growth of
nearby Tacoma and the interurban rail lines. The Western Washington Fairgrounds were developed giving local
farmers a place to exhibit their crops and livestock. During the early part of World War II, the fairgrounds
were part of Camp Harmony, a temporary Japanese American internment camp for more than 7,000 detainees, most
of whom were American citizens. Subsequently, they were moved to the Minidoka relocation center near Twin Falls,
Puyallup is located at 47°10′33″N 122°17′37″W (47.1757,-122.2936).
According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 14.04 square miles (36.36 km2), of
which, 13.93 square miles (36.08 km2) is land and 0.11 square miles (0.28 km2) is water, mainly consisting of
the Puyallup River estuary.
Puyallup is bordered largely by unincorporated Pierce County. The closest neighbors include the city of Sumner to
the northeast, Fife and Edgewood to the north, Tacoma to the northwest, Summit and Midland to the west, South Hill,
Graham and Frederickson to the south, McMillin and Orting to the southeast, and Alderton to the east.
Downtown and the valley neighborhoods of Puyallup would likely be damaged or destroyed in a moderate or large
eruption of nearby Mount Rainier.
