About Mercer Island, WA
King County is the home of Mercer Island. The census that was taken in the year 2011 reported that Mercer Island had a population of 22,770 people. Since the year 2000, this represented a 3.30% increase in the population of Mercer Island at that time.
The first time the name Mercer's Island was used was it was in a survey by the government in 1860. At some later time, the apostrophe was lost and the name was shortened to Mercer Island. A man named Thomas Mercer, who was an early pioneer who also recommended the named for Lake Union and Lake Washington, was the namesake of Mercer Island. Mr. Mercer was born in 1813 and died in 1898.
In 1852, Thomas Mercer arrived in Seattle from Princeton, Illinois. Once in Seattle, Thomas Mercer filed a donation claim east of Lake Union, then known as tenas Chuck, which in the Chinook Indian language translates into little waters. The boundary between a claim mad by a man named David Denny and the claim of Thomas Mercer was Mercer Street.
Thomas Mercer held a picnic on his land in 1854. Mr. Mercer proposed that the name hyas Chuck, which in the Chinook Indian Language translates into large water, be changed to Lake Washington and that the name tenas Chuck be changed to Union. Because Mr. Mercer was known to visit the large island at the southern end of Lake Washington quite frequently, somebody who was attending the picnic suggested the island be called Mercer's Island.
The island was formally named Mercer's Island by a federal survey of the land in 1860. Sometime later, the apostrophe was removed, and the name of the island became known as Mercer Island.
The local Indians were friendly with Mr. Mercer. Mr. Mercer frequently hired on of these local Indians in the morning row him to Mercer Island and in the evening, row him back from the island. Mr. Mercer would frequently spend the hours of his day picking berries, enjoying the beautiful setting, and simply exploring.
One time, when the local Indian returned to the island to retrieve him, Mr. Mercer wasn't on shore waiting for him. There is an old Indian legend that says that each night the island sank into the lake and then in the morning would rise again. The local Indian rowed his canoe back alone, not wanting to be around when this supernatural event occurred.
The next morning, Mr. Mercer was standing on the shore when the local Indian returned. The local Indian noticed that the clothes that Mr. Mercer was wearing were dry. The local Indian believed that Mr. Mercer had somehow miraculously survived the island sinking. From then on, there were some Native Indians who believed that Mr. Mercer had powers that were supernatural.
