This community is on the east shore of Lake Washington north of Renton in west central King County. The place was established as Hillman’s Garden of Eden Addition to Seattle but did not flourish. In 1907, when a post office was established, residents were invited to propose names. A drawing from a list resulted in the present name; there was once a lot of native hazel in the neighborhood.
