Marysville, Washington

Marysville is a city in the Seattle metropolitan region, located in Snohomish County, Washington, United States. On the north side of the Snohomish River delta, 35 miles north of Seattle and near Everett. After Everett, it is the second-largest city in Snohomish County. Marysville was not populated until 1883, even though it was founded in 1872 as a trading post by James P. Comeford. Following the town's plating in 1885, Marysville had a period of growth that drew in new constructions and businesses. The Great Northern Railway was completed in 1891, the same year Marysville was founded. The region has always relied on wood and agricultural products; the city of Marysville was dubbed "Strawberry City" owing to the abundance of strawberry fields. From the low-lying downtown along the banks of Ebey Slough to the eastern hills at Smokey Point, the city's landscape is varied. Marysville is home to the watersheds of two major waterways: Quilceda Creek and Allen Creek. Marysville's skyline is dominated by the Olympic Mountains to the west and Mount Pilchuck and the Cascade Mountains to the east. Mount Pilchuck is included in the city's logo and flag.

In 2009, the Red Curtain Foundation for the Arts was established in Marysville to provide art, music, and theatre training as well as community theatre events. Two other local arts organizations are the Marysville Arts Coalition and the Sonus Boreal women's chorus. A children's museum was located at the Marysville Towne Center Mall from 1993 to 1995. The museum relocated to a temporary location in Everett before reopening in downtown Everett as the Imagine Children's Museum in 2004. The city has also hosted a historic telephone museum downtown since 1996.

Marysville was the setting for Trouble in High Timber Country, a 1980 made-for-television film. Marysville formed its first sister city relationship with Yueqing, a coastal city in China's Zhejiang province, in 2017.
