            The early families and activities of Woodinville were first chronicled January 1, 1903, when the Bothell Independent began publication. The newspaper served the pioneer communities of Bothell, Kenmore and Woodinville…. collectively labeled 50 years later as Northshore (referring to their shoreside location on Lake Washington). Each is an incorporated city today.

            The newspaper coverage for Woodinville varied over the subsequent 100 years, including the Bothell Sentinel, Bothell Independent, Bothell Citizen, Northshore Citizen and Woodinville Weekly. Viewing access to those newspapers ranges from library and university microfilm to yellowed hard copies at the Woodinville and Bothell museums.

            Today, the publication years of 1940-1960 can be viewed at the linked website of the Woodinville Heritage Society at The earliest years (1903-1939) can be found online via the Bothell Historical Society website. There are missing copies and sometimes the newspapers ceased to publish and then began again under a new banner. But, eventually, the full range of newspaper years through the present will be found online, once the Kenmore Heritage Society completes the time span.

Processing of the images makes it possible to offer key-word and name-search capability.

Before long, all available issues will be scanned and may be reviewed online through the web-hosting arrangement between the Woodinville Heritage Society and
