The Railroads

The railroads reached Snohomish County in 1888 and drove the area’s cornerstone timber industry through the 1960’s. At one point, each day saw a steady stream of fully loaded rail cars, up to 80 per day—transporting logs to mills along the route that later became the Centennial Trail.
