KING MOUNTAIN NEIGHBORHOOD
Bellingham’s newest “official” neighborhood, King Mountain is a thriving community of nearly 800 residents with significant prospects for growth in the future. Encompassing a little over 600 acres between the Mount Baker and the Guide Meridian/Cordata neighborhoods, this area is most known for its namesake, King Mountain. This small peak, climbing to 551 feet above sea level, gives its residents astounding panoramic views of Bellingham Bay, the San Juan Islands, and the City itself.
Development in the neighborhood ranges from scattered homes on large lots to newer, well-landscaped housing developments on medium-sized lots. King Mountain neighborhood is also home to a mobile home park on James Street. Woodland and wetland areas are common throughout the neighborhood, providing a natural, away-from-it-all feel. This bit of seclusion also draws King Mountain neighbors into a tight-knit community.
Convenient shopping and recreational opportunities remain close-by in two directions, with the Guide Meridian and Mount Baker neighborhoods each within five minutes’ drive. Children attend Sunnyland Elementary School. Middle-school students attend Shuksan Middle School, while high-schoolers go to Squalicum High School.
