Edmonds is situated on the waterfront just a few miles north of Seattle. So whether you come by car, ferry, bike or train, it’s easy to escape to our town.
Edmonds has always had a strong link to the water. It began with logger George Brackett, who first came by canoe in 1870. He and other early founders settled here, and by 1884 the area had a post office, an organized school system and an official name: Edmonds. Railroad and passenger ferry service followed soon after, and by the turn of the century, Edmonds was a booming mill town. As timber dwindled in the mid-twentieth century, the town shifted away from logging to embrace a thriving community of recreation and commerce along the beautiful waterfront. The Edmonds Marina was built in the early 1960s, and continues to attract boaters, sailors, kayakers and all manner of water-lovers today.
