Friday's Did You Know?Did you know that the city of Woodinville used to be covered in trees so large that the people in the area used to live in their large stumps?   Woodinville was incorporated in 1993 but you can trace the history back to George Rutter Wilson and Columbus Greenleaf claiming the area in 1870.  The Woodin family was the first family and they operated Woodinvilles first school, church and post office.Stumps?  I'd say Woodinville real estate has changed a bit!
