Kent, Washington is a rural town of about 4,000 people that sits at the foot of the Cascade Mountains. In the early 1900s, copper mining dominated the local economy and brought prosperity to many people. The city itself was incorporated in 1902. Its first mayor was Fred M. Kent, who named it after himself. The community has retained its charms despite a decline in mining activity since the 1950s.

The state of Washington is full of rich history, with its earliest inhabitants being the Salish, Spokane, and other tribes. The state was originally called Columbia after Christopher Columbus. Settlers started to populate the area in 1851, and two years later they established the territorial government. The name changed to Washington in 1889 when it became a state.
