Description
Norwegian immigrants established a permanent settlement here in the 1870s. Initially a logging town, Stanwood became a farm trading center after the adjacent floodplain was drained and diked. A narrow-gauge railroad less than a mile in length, which linked the original town center with the community of East Stanwood, was known as “the world's shortest railroad” until it ceased operations in 1938.
