Burien

In 1884, Gottlieb Burian and his wife Emma Burian, German immigrants from Hussinetz, Lower Silesia, who owned two taverns in downtown Seattle, arrived in what was then known as Sunnydale.  The tiny community was without improved roads or commercial buildings, reached primarily by trails.  Burian built a cabin on the southeast corner of Lake Burien and reportedly formed the community into a town bearing his name, which has been misspelled over the years.

Burien is a young city built from a 100-year-old waterfront community on the Puget Sound. With six miles of shoreline and expansive mountain views, residents take pride in their neighborhoods, actively preserve the marine biodiversity of the area, and protect their public spaces.
