About Yarrow Point
Yarrow Point, a small peninsula located in King County on the east side of Lake Washington, extends a mile northward into the lake, forming the western shore of Yarrow Bay, just south of Kirkland. It is the farthest east of three fingers of land, the other two being Hunts Point and Evergreen Point. Clyde Hill and the SR-520 Highway edge Yarrow Point's southern border. Residents of Yarrow Point can hear caroling bells sound on the quarter hour, echoing across Yarrow Bay from Carillon Point to the east.
Pleasure and tour boats crisscross highways through the waters to and from Seattle and Kirkland's harbor, reminders of the busy world across the bay. Before the late nineteenth century, Yarrow Point remained forested and unspoiled, only visited by shifting gray, soft fog, and frequent mists. William Easter filed the first homestead claim in 1886. Later came strawberry, vegetable, and holly farms. Yarrow Point incorporated as a town in 1959. Conserving the peninsula's wetlands and woods has been a key focus of the town.'
Leigh S. J. Hunt, owner of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, became Yarrow Point’s first land speculator. He bought most of it in 1888 and on its northern shoreline built a large estate he named “Yarrow” after a favorite poem by William Wordsworth. Over time the name “Yarrow” seemed suitable as a name for the location, and the small peninsula became known as Yarrow Point.
