A Fun Fact About
Lynnwood, WA

In 1917 the community of Alderwood Manor, now Lynnwood, emerged from the logged off land as a result of a successful real estate venture planned and developed by the Puget Mill Company. The company’s promise, “Those who have in their hearts an earnest longing for Health, Happiness and Independence will find a welcome awaiting in the quiet, peaceful Alderwood Manor Countryside,” was hard to resist. Five and ten-acre parcels were sold to city dwellers for $200 an acre. The Company’s model Demonstration Farm and Poultry College taught the inexperienced farmers how to make a good living from the land. By 1922, the population of Alderwood Manor grew to 1,463 people and 200,000 hens. Egg production in Alderwood Manor was second only to Petaluma California.
