Origins

Shoreline began in 1890 with the platting of the neighborhood of Richmond Beach, on Puget Sound, in anticipation of the arrival of the Great Northern Railway the next year. Over the next two decades, Shoreline was connected to Seattle via the Seattle-Everett Interurban streetcar line (1906) and a newly paved North Trunk Road (now Aurora Avenue N., State Route 99) (1913), helping to increase its population.

Shoreline was officially incorporated on August 31, 1995 as a code city. Residents used Seattle, WA as their address only until 1995 when the city was formed and addresses changed to Shoreline, WA.
