Historic Snohomish is listed in both the state and national registers of historic places. Founded in 1859, Snohomish is known as the "Antique Capital of the Northwest" and is a treasure trove of historic buildings and homes. Bound by the Snohomish and Pilchuck Rivers, Snohomish has 37 acres of park land and 61 acres of Blackmans Lake. The gateway to the Centennial Trail, Snohomish follows abandoned rail lines north to Skagit County. Its farm valley has miles of country roads that wind through the lush and scenic farmlands. Harvey Field airport serves fixed wing and rotor-wing aircrafts and is home to world-class skydiving and hot air ballooning.
