Long before founding father George Brackett bought acres of waterfront timber in Edmonds, the Snohomish Indian Tribe fished and gathered clams and oysters on the banks of Puget Sound. When Brackett arrived, however, the town exploded in population. Pioneers arrived daily to work as loggers, shingle sawyers and weavers in the shingle mills, which stretched along the Edmonds waterfront. Over time, the mill industry dwindled and Edmonds assumed a more modern, cosmopolitan flavor. Today, the Edmonds Historical Museum captures the town's rich history by housing a reconstruction of a room from the 1894 Stevens Hotel and a working model of a shingle mill.
Snohomish County is nestled between the sparkling blue waters of Puget Sound and the rugged, snow-capped peaks of the Cascade Mountains in northwest Washington State. It is a gateway for exploring the entire Pacific Northwest. Edmonds is also reflective of the county's beauty. There are four beach parks to enjoy in Edmonds -the Edmonds Underwater Park, Olympic Beach & Fishing Pier, Marina Beach, and Bracketts Landing, a marine sanctuary. The Union Oil Marsh Wildlife Sanctuary Trails is a destination of interest for bird watchers and other nature lovers.
Wonderful annual events held in Edmonds include the Edmonds Arts Festival, the Waterfront Festival, Hot Autumn Nites, a Classic Car Show, and Edmonds in Bloom, which features downtown's old-time streetlights decorated with hanging flower baskets.
