Early Snohomish book. Very easy read with lots of early pictures of Snohomish that you will enjoy if you live in Snohomish and/or the author is your neighbor.

Early Snohomish book. Also, my complaint about these Images of America are always about the white people. I want to hear more about the tribes, even if there are not many pictures. I do want to give kudos t It was rather boring but I still like the pictures. It seemed like it was the same thing, page after page. I think it would have been nice if the definition of early Snohomish could have broadened to say, 1950.

This riverside city was established when a rumor surfaced that a military road would be crossing over the Snohomish River. The road never materialized. By 1866, the "mother city" of the new county was little more than a clearing in the woods, offering a store and a saloon, and was known up and down the river as Cadyville. Ten years later, the name Snohomish City was established, along with the first newspaper, the first school, and the first literary society in the county

Only 7 left in stock (more on the way). Covering the chaotic boom years to the present day, Everett Herald contributor, historian, and Washington native M. L. Dehm's informative text enhances this selection of images culled from the valuable collection in the Northwest Room of the Everett Public Library. It's a slice of local history not to be forgotten.

The Snohomish Historical Society was selected as a partner along with our local library branch to select historic images from our collection for a featured online presence at Sno-Isle.

This riverside city was established when a rumor surfaced that a military road would be crossing over the Snohomish River. The road never materialized. By 1866, the “mother city” of the new county was littlemore than a clearing in the woods, offering a store and a saloon, and was known up and down the river as Cadyville. Ten years later, the name Snohomish City was established, along with the first newspaper, the first school, and the first literary society in the county. Farms, logging camps, and trading posts throughout the area pivoted around this growing cityand manufacturing center. Even Seattle was not much larger and offered no more amenities. Today 9,000 residents call Snohomish home, and as the area develops farther away from the riverside and its historic roots, this book invites the reader to pause and remember.

Very interesting presentation of the creation and development of the City of Snohomish.

Early Snohomish (WA) (Images of America)

My family has been in Snohomish since the mid 1873. The book had great pictures but was very one sided toward certain families. It was written with the help of one of the old families so it left out alot of history. If you want a picture book with lots of great old pictures, this is the one to buy.

I wrote this book because I love the history of Snohomish and wanted to do something to help support our struggling historical society. History is full of fascinating stories of economic treachery where merchants are forever placing their self-interest before the good of their community, which usually takes the form of undercutting other shop owners on retail prices. If you like your history relating to contemporary practices, regardless of how low they can go, then this is the book for you.

It's ok. Doesn't seem to have the whole history but ok.
