About White Center, WA
King County is the home of White Center, Washington. The census that was taken in the year 2010 reported that White Center had a population of 13,495 people. Since the year 2000, this population represented a 33.70% decrease in the population of White Center at that time.
The US government sold 319 acres of land to a man named Ed Solomon in 1870. Mr. Solomon was first white settler to arrive in the region of White Center/Burien part of Washington Territory. Two men named Tom Hood and Sam Carr understood that the timber was the real value of the property. In 1877, they began a timber operation that provided the first payroll in the region.
A Civil War veteran and immigrant form Germany named Gottlleib Green bought 80 acres of land after arriving in White Center during the early 1880's. He also constructed a sawmill. By The property was sold in five and 20 acre lots after being logged and subdivided during the 1890's. The families who bought these lots wanted to try their hand at farming among all of the bogs and stumps. Over the years, they put together crude shacks, cleared stumps, and dug wells trying just about anything to earn a living on their property. Some raised mink, rabbits, or foxes, while others planted mushrooms, potatoes, berries, or orchards.
In order to log the area, roads were required. A road was constructed up the muddy, steep grade to Hicks Lake from the Duwamish basin in 1892. A man named Jacob Ambaum purchased 20 acres where what is currently known as St. Bernadette Church is located in 1902.
A logging railroad had been established between what is currently known as Roxbury Lanes and Seola Beach by 1905. Soon another line was established between Highland Park and Glendale. In the late 1800's, isolated places such as Seola Beach to different places next to Puget Sound were being linked by boats from the Mosquito Fleet.
Speculators in real estate in particular but also some early settlers recognized that a streetcar that connected the local regions to Seattle would almost ensure profitability and growth. The leaders of White Center including men named George White, Hiram Green, and Jacob Ambaum financed the building of the Lake Burien and Highland Park streetcar line. Some of the streetcar line was washed away by a mud slide. Seattle purchased the streetcar line and promised to continue the service after repairing it. This streetcar line became the first streetcar line that was municipally owned in the Seattle region.
Hiram Green and George White answered the question about a name for the community with a coin toss that Mr. White won and the name became White Center in 1918. The Oak Park Grocery, which was the first store in White Center, opened in 1908. In the middle 1930's the White Center Boxing Arena opened. It was converted into the Southgate Skate center in Boxing continued into the mid-1930s, when the building became a dance hall. In 1937 it reopened as the Southgate Skate Center.
There was a population explosion in White center as a result of WW II. Industries associated with the war attracted people from the upper Midwest to the Puget Sound region. Foundries, steel mills, shipyards, and the Boeing Company all were working three shifts, and Seattle wasn't ready for this population explosion. Local resident from White Center was one of the places where people were looking for any kind of housing including garages, basements, and attics.
The first bank in White Center opened in 1944. In 1945, a sewer district was approved. The commercial center of White Center was very active during the 1950's and the 1960's. The community had a gun shop, dentists, three electrical appliance stores, six variety stores, four barber shops, four pharmacies, six taverns, and five restaurants. However, shopping malls were next.
IN 1970, the South Seattle Community College was established. During the 21st century, White Center had a very low tax base as a result of very little industry. Compared to other neighborhoods in the area, the property values were low and during the 1990's the crime rates and unemployment increased.
Although White Center has remained somewhat affordable, the property values in Seattle have increased significantly. White Center has some large problems but the future is promising. The residents have to decide if they want their community to be annexed by Burien or Seattle or to incorporate. There isn't any current consensus.
