Marysville Real Estate Listings and Information

Marysville

Marysville is a city in Snohomish County, Washington, United States. The population was 60,020 at the 2010 census. Marysville is known as "The Strawberry City," as it was once surrounded by numerous strawberry farms in its earlier days. The landscape includes Mount Pilchuck, whose 5300-foot-high peak can be seen from various points in the city.

For much of its history, Marysville was a trading city of a rural area based on farming and lumber production. Other smaller industries contributed to a diverse economy and growth over the years. This economic diversity has buffered the city during times of economic crisis such as the Great Depression. Marysville did not suffer as much as those towns that were more dependent on the timber trade and mining, which both declined sharply in that period.

Although farms still operate in the area around the city, the lumber industry has all but ceased and is no longer a major factor in the local economy. Since 1990, the city has developed a larger retail and service-based economy. It is closely intertwined economically with its neighbors throughout the Puget Sound area through large regional employers such as Boeing and Microsoft.

In 2011, the 364th Expeditionary Sustainment Command of the U.S. Army Reserve moved into a new facility in Marysville, from Fort Lawton, which was closed as a military facility in Seattle. Employment and demand associated with the naval station in nearby Everett and its support facilities also play an increasing role in the local economy.

Newer shopping places in the area include the Seattle Premium Outlets, located within Tulalip, on the west side of I-5. A new shopping center near there includes a Kohl's, Ross, and WinCo grocery store.

The City of Marysville has several historic parks and places. They include Comeford Park, Jennings Park, the Marysville Water Tower, the Gehl House, Ken Baxter Senior Center, and more. All are public and have free admission.

Marysville had two 150,000-gallon water towers constructed in 1921, which served until the 1970s. Red beacons on their tops were used until the late 1940s to alert police when they needed to respond to an emergency. The only surviving tower is located in Comeford Park. The other tower was located on Second Avenue. It was demolished in 1987, along with many of Marysville's historical buildings, to make way for the Marysville Mall. This was built on six square blocks, replacing much of the original structures of downtown.

Comeford Park is in downtown next to the Ken Baxter Senior Center. In addition to the water tower, the center has a large gazebo donated by Marysville's Rotary Club. A children's playground is also located in the park.

Jennings Park is near Downtown and located off historic Armar Road. It is the site of the historic Gehl House, a small log cabin that has been restored and furnished to reflect life in 1884. The park features a children's area. A wide trail leads to another children's area and a pond for fishing.

The Ken Baxter Senior Center is in Downtown Marysville and located in historic Comeford Park. The building formerly was used as a city hall, police station, jail, fire station, and library before being adapted in 1997 as a senior center in 1997.
