North Bend is a city in King County, Washington, United States. The population was 6,739 in a 2016 census estimate.Since the Weyerhaeuser sawmill closed, North Bend has become a bedroom community for Seattle, Washington. The town was made famous by David Lynch's television series Twin Peaks. North Bend is home to Nintendo North Bend, the main North American production facility and distribution center for the video game console manufacturer Nintendo.HistoryThe Native Americans who inhabited the Snoqualmie Valley, led by Chief Patkanim, sided with settlers in the wars of the 1850s and, with the Treaty of Point Elliott, lost such title as settlers acknowledged. Some of the soldiers in those wars, such as the brothers and sisters Kellogg, established cabins near their blockhouses; however the first permanent settler in the valley was Jeremiah Borst, in 1858.In 1865, Matts Peterson homesteaded the site that ultimately became North Bend. Deeply in debt, he sold the property to Borst and moved east of the mountains. Borst wrote to Will Taylor, who had left the area to go mining in California, and offered him the Peterson place in exchange for labor. Taylor returned and prospered as a farmer and operator of a trading post. He platted North Bend as Snoqualmie but because another nearby town had the same name, renamed it Mountain View. However, the Post Office Department objected to the name Mountain View, so it was renamed North Bend after its location near the north bend of the South Fork of the Snoqualmie River. North Bend was officially incorporated on March 12, 1909.
