    This picture shows the exact spot where a Centennial Trail trailhead sits today. The concrete pad still exists where the legs of the water tower were anchored (right side of photo). Snohomish County is working on a project to highlight the history along the Centennial Trail, which follows the original railway right of way built north of Snohomish in 1889 by the Seattle, Lake Shore and Eastern Railroad.

Snohomish County is asking people to share photos, stories, memories and other information for an interpretative project about the Centennial Trail and how the former rail line was used.
The project consists of posting interpretive signs, creating an educational video and setting up a website about the trail, which was completed this year and runs 28 miles from the city of Snohomish in the south to the new Nakashima Farm trailhead in the north. The trail follows the original railway right of way built north of Snohomish in 1889 by the Seattle, Lake Shore and Eastern Railroad.
The educational project is sponsored by the county's Economic Development Department with grant funding from the state Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation.
It aims to explore the history of the Centennial Trail while featuring the future of this region in industry, technology, recreation and mobility.
Email historic information for the interpretive program to info@centennialtrail.com or by mail at: Site Story Attn: Centennial Trail 2513 11th Avenue W. Seattle, WA 98119
