The City of Puyallup was founded in 1877 when Ezra Meeker platted a townsite near the crest of the Puyallup Valley in southeastern Pierce County. Initially, it was a small trading town with Indians, Chinese and other Native Americans, and a few white settlers. But the Indian War of 1855-1856 drove many settlers away and they didn't return in significant numbers until after the Civil War.

As time went on, the influx of Europeans changed the face of the town and the region as a whole. The Northern Pacific Railroad laid tracks through Puyallup, and coal was mined at the head of the valley. The town grew rapidly, and by the time the Great Depression hit, it had become an important commercial center with 18 trains per day.

Today, the quaint town of Puyallup is still home to a small, active downtown shopping district filled with historic buildings dating back to the town's founding. It's also home to the downtown farmers' market, which takes place every Saturday in Pioneer Park and the modern pavilion building.

There's also a beautiful, well-maintained public art collection with 32 permanent sculptures throughout the town. The outdoor gallery is funded by volunteers from the regional organization Valley Arts United, and new pieces are added regularly.

Puyallup has a vibrant and eclectic culture with a rich history. The city's cultural activities include concerts, theater, dance and other events. The arts community is supported by the Puyallup Cultural Commission and the Puyallup Museum of Art.
