Puyallup is the largest city in Washington that is not an island. It was officially incorporated on February 28, 1893. The city's economy consists mainly of retail trade and services, with a significant amount of manufacturing as well. Major employers include Goodwill Industries, Fred Meyer (a regional supermarket chain), PEMCO (an insurance company) and Boeing Rotorcraft Systems; other major companies based in Puyallup include Car Toys and Pacific Cascade Bank. History [ edit ] The first people to live in the area now known as Puyallup were Native Americans who migrated from northern areas around 10,000 years ago. They settled along rivers for fishing. Their population increased significantly after a village was built near present-day Pioneer Park, at what became known as "the Narrows" where the White River narrows between two hills before entering Pierce County from King County.
