This week continues our look at Goode’s Corner, which was located in the vicinity of the intersection between State Route 900 and Newport Way. In this photo, taken after 1900, the Goode home stands out, with the road that is now Newport Way running behind it.  The cleared valley behind the Goode home is now filled with various retail shops.

Ida Goode Walimaki, a local descendant of one of Issaquah’s pioneer families, was raised in this house and still lives there at 1810 N. W. Goode Place.

For variety, this week we’ll take a different look at the Goode Farm. This photograph shows the farm, which was acquired from the Tibbetts before 1912, covered with a winter snowfall. Goode’s Corner was in the vicinity of where the present-day Newport Way intersects with State Route 900.
