Stanwood – Camano History

The Stanwood-Camano Community Fair started in 1932 and has become the largest Community Fair in Washington State! This Crane Truck was built in 1919 and was then used to log the entire South end of Camano Island. Be sure to stop by the fair this weekend and check it out!

Matthew Gardner, Chief Economist for Windermere Real Estate just released a market update for Western Washington.
“The Washington State economy has been expanding at a rapid pace but we are seeing a slowdown as the state grows closer to full employment [. . .] I believe that growth in the state will continue to outperform the U.S. as a whole and, with such robust expansion, I would not be surprised to see more people relocate here as they see Washington as a market that offers substantial opportunity.”

Stanwood Royalty?

Did you know Stanwood was visited by Royalty?

In Stanwood on May 27, 1939 it was the occasion of an extra special ceremony, the dedication of the Toftezen Memorial erected in honor of Washington’s first Norwegian settlers.

“The town was in full dress on that historic day, when Crown Prince Olav and Crown Princess Martha of Norway arrived shortly after 11 o’clock in answer to a dedication request from the Sons of Norway and the Stillaguamish Historical Society.”
