Located 7 miles west of TreeHouse Point, Issaquah is surrounded by Cougar, Squak, and Tiger Mountain. Issaquah was originally developed to service the mining industry; however, as the mining deposits neared depletion in the late 1890s, lucrative lumber businesses emerged. These companies exported timber from Issaquah to Seattle and other larger, rapidly growing communities throughout western Washington for many years. It was not until much later that Boeing, Microsoft, and Costco significantly impacted Issaquah's economy.
Gilman Village
It all began in 1972 when Marvin and Ruth Mohl started saving unwanted buildings around the old farming and mining town of Issaquah. In saving the buildings, the idea was to honor the character and ambiance of the old community rather than to create a museum. They moved, renovated and combined them into an attractive retail area in a park-like setting with the ultimate goal of creating a haven for independent shops and restaurants. Over a quarter of century later, the 40-plus shops and restaurants that make up Gilman Village constitute one of Puget Sounds' most distinctive shopping destinations.

Located in the foothills of the Cascade Mountain Range, North Bend is located about 10 miles east of TreeHouse Point, situated in the upper valley of the Snoqualmie River. Native Americans resided in this area for thousands of years. By 1892, the town had a hotel, saloon, cobbler's shop, bank, and general store. North Bend received its name due to its location near the north bend of the South Fork of the Snoqualmie River. North Bend is home to a resident elk herd, numbering about 300-600 elk and was made famous by David Lynch's television series Twin Peaks in the early 1990's.

Carnation, located about 8 miles north of TreeHouse Point, is a rural farming community situated along the Snoqualmie, originally known as the town of Tolt. The confluence of the Tolt and Snoqualmie rivers was the main village site for the Snoqualmie tribe for thousands of years. Dairy farming was an economic staple for the Carnation area ever since the brush had been cleared, but Carnation Dairy put the town on the map. In fact, the valley became world-famous as the "Home for Contented Cows." One cow from the herd, nicknamed "Possum Sweetheart," produced more than 37,000 pounds of milk in one year -- a world record. From the late 1800's through 1951 the town of Carnation switched its name back and forth a number of times, before finally settling on the town name of Carnation.
