Covington - “Growing toward greatness”

During the 1880’s, the Northern Pacific Railroad, looking to complete a western rail line from Minnesota to Auburn, WA sent out a surveyor to scout out a route that is now known as the Palmer Cutoff.  A stop was named after the surveyor, Richard Covington, and soon thereafter the growing area surrounding the train stop adopted the name as well.  Due to the immense amount of natural resources in the area, Covington Lumber Company built a lumber mill and workers followed.  When the timber industry died out, dairy farmers moved in.  The rural real estate around Covington remained a largely dairy farming community and continued to grow slowly.  By 1992, Covington had become known as an up and coming urban activity center due to the expansion of the neighboring cities of Kent and Auburn.  The formally rural, one-railroad-stop town of Covington officially became a city on August 31, 1997, when incorporation into King County took effect.
