EVENTS

     In 1880, Gottlieb Van Boorian arrived from Germany and is credited with founding the town of Burien. He built a cabin at the southeastern corner of the lake and so Lake Burien also bears his name. As land was logged, real estate offices opened to sell lots. In the early 1900s, people came by boat from Seattle and Tacoma to the Three Tree Point dock to hike the trails, picnic, rent tents, and attend concerts. They listened to sales pitches by representatives of the Three Tree Point Developers Company and bought waterfront lots for as little as $75 to $300.
