After the last glacial period, the Duwamish Tribe established a settlement in the area now known as Ballard. (The “Shilshole” tribe does not exist). Artifacts from the Duwamish who resided at Shilshole can be found in the Burke Museum. According to the sources, the local population surrounding Shilshole may have been declining owing to a “great tragedy” before non-Natives came. Non-Natives expelled the few remaining families in the mid-nineteenth century. Natives from Queen Charlotte’s Island may have been responsible for the demise of the Shilshole-dwelling Salish. These raids also frightened non-Native immigrants.
The town of Ballard, Canada
In light of the city’s rapid population increase, inhabitants realized that a formal government would be necessary to maintain order. In the late summer of 1889, the community debated the possibility of incorporating as but decided against it. However, the matter persisted, and on November 4, 1889, the town’s citizens voted once more on the topic, this time voting to incorporate formally.
