The first settlers to the area that is now Lynnwood came in the late 1800s. It was a two day trip into Seattle for provisions in those days. Later timber companies moved into the area and began harvesting trees and cutting lumber. Pope and Talbot was an early operator in the Lynnwood timber industry. Eventually a railroad was built between Everett and Seattle and logged parcels (5 acre and 1 acre lots) were sold for other purposes such as farming.
Though it struggled to gain momentum through the depression and war years, Lynnwood is now a hub of activity. Being about 15 miles north of Seattle, Lynnwood is now a great jumping off point for all the Puget Sound area has to offer. All the amenities of a vibrant town are here; entertainment venues, dining, shopping, parks, and easy access to waterfront burghs, hiking, skiing, sailing, boating, water sports, fishing, and nearby urban centers.
