Laid out in 1877, The town was named Puyallup, meaning “generous people” in the Puyallup language. Currently, Puyallup is a hub within Pierce County and supports just under 50,000 people. Puyallup sits at the foot of beautiful Mount Rainier in the Puget Sound area. Puyallup is almost 35 miles south of Seattle and 10 miles east of Tacoma. It's an easy commute on Sound Transit's Sounder train to Tacoma, Seattle with access to several small suburban cities along the way.

In the town's early days, Puyallup was known for its berries, hops, and flowers. Today many events, such as the Washington State Fair, the Daffodil Festival and Parade, and the Puyallup Farmers Market celebrate the city's agricultural past. However, there's much more happening in Puyallup than one would think at first glance. Two regional retail and business centers in South Hill and Downtown offer a host of foodie and shopping experiences. Wonderful public spaces and parks, excellent K-12 schools, and an excellent regional medical center are some of the amenities appreciated by residents and visitors alike.

Puyallup has a growing reputation for promoting environmental stewardship. After our city hall received a LEED gold designation in 2009, many other developments, both large and small, have incorporated environmentally-friendly components such as solar panels, green roofs and rain gardens.
