Edmonds is located in the state of Washington and a city in Snohomish County. It sits on the southwestern side of the county that faces Puget sound and the Olympic Mountains going west. The city is part of the Seattle metropolitan area and is situated on the northern side of Seattle, and going southwest of Everett. Edmonds was then first established by a logger who bought the land claim from an earlier settler. The area was then incorporated after, just shortly before the Great Northern Railway arrived in the area. The residents who live in the area during its younger years were employed by the logging companies and shingle mills that have operated until the end of the 1950s. The hills that surround the city were then developed to become a suburban bedroom community in the middle of the 20th century and was then annexed thereafter into the city. At present, it has become a regional hub for museums, arts, specialized facilities, and other major annual festivals that are celebrated in the downtown area.
