Shoreline is a city in King County, Washington, United States, 9 miles (14 km) north of Downtown Seattle bordering the northern Seattle city limits. As of the 2010 census, the population was 53,007, making it the 20th largest city in the state of Washington.
Based on per capita income, one of the more reliable measures of affluence, Shoreline ranks 91st of 522 areas in the state of Washington to be ranked.
The Shoreline area was inhabited by the Native American Duwamish people for at least 4,000 years before the first permanent European settlers began platting the neighborhood of Richmond Beach, on Puget Sound, in 1890, in anticipation of the arrival of the Great Northern Railway the next year. Over the next two decades, Shoreline was connected to Seattle via the Seattle-Everett Interurban streetcar line (1906) and North Trunk Road (now Aurora Avenue N., State Route 99) (1913), helping to increase its population.
The name "Shoreline" was applied to this stretch of unincorporated King County in 1944 when it was given to the school district, since the school district boundaries stretched from "Shore to Shore" (Puget Sound to Lake Washington) and "Line to Line" (the old Seattle city limit of 85th St to the Snohomish County Line). Though the modern borders of the city do not stretch to Lake Washington, the area has kept the "Shoreline" name.
After the incorporation of Lake Forest Park in 1961, the remainder of the Shoreline School District remained an unincorporated portion of King County. Fifty-one years after it had been named, on August 31, 1995 Shoreline was officially incorporated as a code city, and it adopted the council-manager form of government. (See City government in the state of Washington.) Residents used Seattle WA as their address until 1995, when the city was formed and addresses changed to Shoreline WA.
Shoreline contracts with the King County Sheriff's Office for police services.
