Issaquah, Washington is located in King County and has a small population with a little over 11,000 folks. As you may or may not know, the name of the town came from Native Americans, meaning “the sound of birds”. Back in the day, this location was a wetland filled with birds, so it fit perfectly with the town’s location. When the first settlers came to Issaquah, they asked the Natives the name of the city and they said “Is Sqak”. Since then, the name has been anglicized to today’s pronunciation.
