Duvall (pronounced DOO-vahl) is located on SR-203, approximately 25 miles northeast of Seattle, halfway between Monroe and Carnation, and is fast becoming a favorite residential community for both commuters and for those who choose to conduct business in a small town setting. Duvall is one of the Duvall Real Estatefastest growing communities in the state.  As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 4,616.  Latest estimates have the population at over 5,700.  Duvall residents represent many walks of life and represent an exciting cross section of occupations and cultures, from loggers to bloggers.

   History

Duvall was officially incorporated on January 7, 1913. The city was settled by loggers in the early 1900s. Several logging companies established themselves on the banks of the Snoqualmie River and began to harvest timber from the area.  A few of the original settlers' homes still remain.

The City was named after James Duvall, a logger, who homesteaded here in 1871 and later sold property to the Cherry Valley Town Site Company.  

When James Duvall arrived, he acquired land from the riverbank up to the hillside extending a mile east of what was known as the Pole Line Road, which is now known as 275th Ave NE.  James had his logging camp located on the southeast corner of what is now 3rd Avenue and Bruett Road (Road to Cedarcrest). His first job was to clear off enough of the woods in order to setup a skid road for transporting the logs to the river.  In his first years James did not have his family living with him, but once the cabin became habitable, he brought his wife named Annie, and their several children to live with him. At this time their were no stores or supply firms. Postal service was erratic and mail was usually held at a little no named cross roads town to the north for someone to pickup.  That town would later be called Monroe.

      Town Events

Every June 4th there is a festival held titled "Duvall Days". Typically the event is marked by a parade and street side vendors.

City Hall is located at 15535 Main St. NE. The City is governed by an elected mayor and seven council members. The mayor appoints a seven member Planning Commission to assist in implementing a design for the growth and development of Duvall. Other appointed boards include a Civil Service Commission, and an Arts Commission. City Administration is shared by the Public Works Director/City Engineer, Chief of Police, and the City Hall Administrator/Planning Director. The City of Duvall provides water, sewer, garbage, and recycling services. There is a leash law and the City contracts with King County for animal control.

Duvall Neighborhoods


 


Lake Joy

   The Lake Joy community has existed for over 75 years. It was originally a lakeside subdivision of the Snoqualmie Tree Farm (originally owned and managed by Weyerhaeuser). Originally, the subdivision consisted of seasonal-use recreation cabins. Over time, the Lake Joy community has evolved to predominantly year-round residential use.  These vary from a dense subdivision with homes on ½ acre lots to small farms with 1 to 10+ acres.  There is a small trail for public access to the lake and it's good fishing.   

   The Reserve at Lake Joy is a community of 20 homes in rural eastern King County just northwest of Lake Joy. The Reserve is situated among 100 acres with designated wetlands scattered throughout providing privacy for residents, homes and for our area wildlife. The homes sites range from two to five acres.

   North Lake Joy Estates is the result of the subdivision of a Douglas Fir plantation and associated wetlands into seventeen, 20-acre parcels. The resulting development is similar in nature to the Tolt River Highlands.
