About Black Diamond

Black Diamond is a city in King County, Washington, United States. The population was 3,970 at the 2000 census.

Based on per capita income, one of the more reliable measures of affluence, Black Diamond ranks 64th of 522 areas in the state of Washington to be ranked.

History

Black Diamond was officially incorporated on February 19, 1959.

Black Diamond was a rural coal mining area. Eventually a town grew up around the mine in the 1880s and it was named in honor of the Black Diamond Coal Company of California, which owned and operated the mine. The town was home to around 3,500 people by the early 1900s, many of them European immigrants; most of the working men were involved in producing coal. It was transported to Seattle via the Pacific Coast Coal train.

After World War I, the town shut down the mine as it was no longer viable. However a second mining boom spurred growth in the town in the early 1930s on the strength of multiple mining operations promoted by the Morris brothers through the Palmer Coking Coal Company. Mining has continued until recently through the Pacific Coast Coal Company, formerly of San Francisco. The prospect of future mining operations remains strong.

Today the town is home to descendants of its original mining population, as well as many new residents linked to the major cities. Its Black Diamond Bakery achieved regional fame in the 1970s for the quality of its breads and other baked goods, and continued to attract destination shoppers. The town's late 20th century population growth has been mostly as a commuter community for people with jobs in Seattle, Bellevue, and other suburban centers.

The town has been home to many famous residents, including folk musician Brandi Carlile (who grew up a few miles east in Ravensdale). The minor-league baseball star Edo Vanni was born at Black Diamond in 1918. This city was put onto the official maps on February 9, 1954, which is considered its national birthdate.

The main building of the Black Diamond Historical Museum is the former train station, which served the Columbia & Puget Sound Railway 1884–1916 and the Pacific Coast Railway 1916–1951. According to a sign at the museum, there were originally two trains a day to Seattle, later only one. Regular passenger service ended in 1925, but a train still brought men to the mine until 1931, and trains continued to haul coal and freight into the 1940s.
