Businessman Solomon Fisher built Fisher's Landing in 1851 as a commercial shipping and refueling dock for steamships on the Washington side of the Columbia River. From the early 1900’s until the late 1960’s, it functioned as the Washington end of a ferry which crossed to Government Island. The settlement of "Fisher" developed in the surrounding area, which later became known as "Fisher’s Landing."
This peaceful, mixed-use community features well kept, tree-lined streets and parks, with good schools, community involvement and a business-friendly environment. Major employers including WaferTech, Nautilus, Sharp and Hewlett Packard are located just minutes away. A business district called Tech Center has walking trails, waterfalls and beautiful landscaping, fitting right in with the neighborhood. There are a wide variety of homes including small ranches, large custom homes, townhomes and condos.
