Marysville History

Marysville's history dates back to 1855, the year in which the Point Elliott Treaty was signed. The signing of this treaty opened up the local area for settlement. Soon, a flourishing timber industry developed in this region. In the 1870s, James P. Comeford and his wife, Maria, bought over 1,000 acres of land in what came to be known as Marysville. They played a significant role in the early development of the region. The community was named after Marysville, CA. The first saw mill was established in this area in 1887. The railroads entered the region a couple of years later. Marysville was officially incorporated on March 20, 1891.
