About Edmonds, WA
Edmonds, Washington is city located just north of Seattle in Snohomish County. The history of the region dates back centuries before Europeans began moving into the area for the rich logging and fishing industries that would develop. Back then the, Suquamish people used the abundance of natural resources located along the many bays and rivers to survive. European settlers didn’t begin coming to the area until the mid 1800’s. Logging was a budding industry in the region and the lure to the west drove many settlers into the area of Puget Sound to try their hands at life in the wilderness.
George Brackett accidentally discovered the land that would later become Edmonds in 1870. He was out in a canoe and was blown ashore in the location that would later become the community. Over the next 20 years, the town would grow and eventually in 1890 become incorporated. In 1891, the Great Northern Railway connected the community with the rest of the country. Prior to this, the only real way in or out was by boat, which kept industry from moving in. Once the railroad arrived, industries were able to ship goods East and the region began to thrive.
Today the population is almost 41,000 people, making it one of Seattle’s larger suburbs. The population growth of the city is about 1% per year. The community still makes good use of its location to water. The Washington State Ferries has a port there. The community also makes good use of its location to Seattle. Residents can easily live in Edmonds and commute 15 miles to the city center of the metropolitan area.
