The City of Redmond was incorporated as a city on Dec. 31, 1912, following a community vote and the birth of Ernest Alexander Adams (born Nov. 24, 1912), who brought the population of Redmond to 300, the number needed to incorporate as a city.

Redmond now encompasses 17.14 square miles and has a population of 54,144 according to the 2011 census.
