Canadian-born George Brackett, founder and first mayor of the town, was a logger and miller who cut his teeth in the backwoods of Maine before settling along the Puget Sound around 1870. Brackett's vision of a logging and mill town in the area began when the city of Edmonds was incorporated in 1890. The Edmonds Historical Museum, which is located in the old Carnegie Library building, is ideal to discover the history of South-Snohomish County and Edmonds. A historic walking tour map can also be obtained from the museum, which highlights 20 sites of historical interest throughout the city.
