History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

Platted August 10, 1906 by real estate promoter Clarence Dayton Hillman as "C.D. Hillman's Pacific City Addition to the City of Seattle," Pacific was officially incorporated on August 10, 1909.

Record-breaking rains in November 2006 pushed the White River over its river banks along Pacific City Park, creating a temporary lake.

In January 2009, release of stormwaters from the Mud Mountain Dam caused even greater flooding, inundating more than a hundred homes.
