University Place, Washington - 98466, 98467




University Place has definitely changed over the years.  It was originally inhabited by local Indian tribes such as the Nisqually, Steilacoom, Squaxin, Puyallup, and Muckleshoot Indians. With the expansion via the Oregon trail, populations bloomed along with progress.  University Place received its name in the 1800's when the University of Puget Sound purchased 420 acres of land with the intent of building a new campus.  However, due to financial difficulties they ended up selling the property back to the city.  In 1995, approximately 100 years after receiving its name, this 8 square mile track of land called University Place, was incorporated.  University Place is located midway between Seattle and Olympia and is home to approximately 32,000 residents.  Among the most well-known residents, were Charles and Mary Curran who established the Curran Apple Orchard.  Currently, where the apple orchard used to exist lies a city park that is enjoyed by the residents.  University Place is home to another well-known landmark, Chambers Bay Golf Course, that draws golfers from around the world and recently hosted the U.S. Amateur in 2010 and the U.S. Open in 2015.
