About Mercer Island

Mercer Island is a city in King County, Washington, United States and the name of the island in Lake Washington on which the city sits. The city is within the Seattle Metropolitan Area and its population was 22,650 in 2008, according to the 2008 US Census Bureau population estimates.

History

Mercer Island was first settled in the 1870s. It was named after early visitors, the Mercer brothers, who often rowed from Seattle for berry picking, hunting and fishing (Gellaty, 1977). The first large settlement was on the northwest side of Mercer Island, called "East Seattle." C.C. Calkins built a resort, the Calkins Hotel, in 1889 in East Seattle. This resort led to the development of a ferry dock (Calkins landing), which in turn led to a growing population. While the Calkins hotel burned to the ground in 1908, the ferry service continued, and a small business district prospered. In the 1930s, George Lightfoot began campaigning for a bridge to Seattle. The Lake Washington Floating Bridge was built in 1940, and this spurred the move of the business district to its present location near the northern end of the island.

The City of Mercer Island incorporated on July 5, 1960. It included all the land area of the island with the exception of the 70 acre (280,000 m²) business district. Just over a month later, on August 9, the business district incorporated as the Town of Mercer Island, wholly surrounded by the City. The two municipalities finally merged on May 19, 1970.

Mercer Island is located at 47°34′9″N 122°13′56″W / 47.56917°N 122.23222°W / 47.56917; -122.23222 (47.569271, -122.232337).

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 33.63 km² (12.986 mi²). 16.28 km² (6.286 mi²) of it is land and 17.4 km² (6.7 mi²) of it (51.33%) is water.

Mercer Island is the most populated island in a lake in the United States. 

Bridges

Mercer Island is connected to Seattle in the west by Interstate 90, carried by the Homer M. Hadley Memorial Bridge (the fifth longest floating bridge in the world) and the Lacey V. Murrow Memorial Bridge (the second longest in the world). I-90 also connects Mercer Island to Bellevue in the east, carried by the East Channel Bridge.

Education

The Mercer Island School District operates six schools on the island: three elementary schools (Lakeridge Elementary, Island Park Elementary and West Mercer Elementary) one middle school (Islander Middle School), one high school (Mercer Island High School), and one alternative high school (Crest Learning Center).

Mercer Island is also home to the St. Monica School(K-8), the French American School of Puget Sound (P-8), and the Northwest Yeshiva High School (9-12).

There are also several preschools on Mercer Island including Early World Montessori located on the north end of the island.

Mercer Island (MI) is an island and city located in the midst of an urban sprawl known as the Seattle Metropolitan Area. Together, with Medina and Clyde Hill, MI is one of the centres of the State of Washington’s (WA) affluent. According to Forbes, the Island’s shores host the most expensive homes in the world—more than any other locale listed. Zip code 98040, the Island was the 156th most expensive in the United States of America (USA) by median entries. Considering that there exist forty thousand zip codes in the USA, 98040 hosts, even only considering the middle resident, the top 0.005% of the USA's affluent. Though an equal partner in wealth, MI does not rank with places such as Bedford due likely to the decade recent effort to more level the socio-economic status of the City multiple resident in and around the City’s rapidly expanding business centre.
