Here is a history page for Enumclaw.

The name for Enumclaw comes from Native Americans who camped near a large nearby mountain now known as Mount Enumclaw. While they were camping, they heard a loud rattling noise caused by strong winds that appeared to come from inside of the mountain. From then on, they referred to the mountain as "Enumclaw," which means "strong wind" or "thundering mountain."

The first settlers came in 1879 when Frank and Mary Stevenson built a home in what is now the middle of Enumclaw. The first name for the town was Stevensonville. The town of Enumclaw was platted on 31 October 1885
