Located just south of Issaquah and about 30 minutes south of Seattle, High Point is an unincorporated community in Washington’s King County. High Point was originally founded in 1905, intended to be a mill town for lumber. Today, however, the town serves as bedroom community for nearby larger cities. In fact, High Point doesn’t even have its own post office; it once did, with the office serving residents from 1910 until 1943. For basic necessities, residents can travel to Preston, which is about three miles from High Point, and visit the Preston General Store.
If you’re a dog owner living in High Point, there are some disadvantages. For example, High Point doesn’t have a veterinarian clinic. There are a few veterinarian options in Issaquah, though, which is less than two miles up the road, so care for your sick or injured pet is no more than a bone’s throw away! If you want to take Fido out for a day on the town, you’ll need to visit a larger city nearby. That’s not a problem, though; there are several options within twenty miles. High Point does have a trail for you to walk your dog on, though, so if you love nature, you’re in luck! Drop by for a visit today.
