Snohomish County: Opportunity Lives Here

Snohomish Main Photo

snohomish waAs the oldest and best preserved city in Snohomish County, Snohomish is listed on both the Washington State and National Register of Historic Places.

Today, you can stroll along riverfront trails or walk through historic tree-lined neighborhoods that still provide identical views seen by the First People of Snohomish (The Sdoh-doh-hohbsh) or the early pioneer settlers who expanded commerce on First Street.

The next cool startup will probably begin in Snohomish, kind of like Funko, which started its humble beginnings as a home occupancy in a Snohomish garage. With access to talent, capital and our low overhead, innovators can afford to, well innovate. And when you need a break from all that innovating, you can hit the refresh button with other makers who just happen to create the region’s most exquisite small-batch craft beer, wine and spirits.

Business and employment climates are robust in SnoTown, mirroring the greater Pacific Northwest’s thriving economy. Light manufacturing, professional services and retail are our bread and butter with room for growth in consumer packaged food, and textile manufacturing.

The Snohomish School District is continually recognized as a leader in education and is proactive in providing training programs that educate the workforce of the future such as their renowned machining pathways and biomedical pathways programs.
