Edmonds History

George Brackett, a logger, founded Edmonds in 1890. Earlier, he came to the area on a canoe searching for timber when a gust of wind beached his canoe at a spot which is now called "Brackett’s Landing." Brackett named the area Edmonds in 1884, and it was officially incorporated as a village in 1890. It was named after Vermont Senator George Franklin Edmunds. The Great Northern Railroad passed through Edmonds in 1891.
