A rich blend of old and new makes Edmonds distinctive.

The Edmonds Mural Society's mission is to celebrate the beauty, history and people of Edmonds by raising murals throughout the city and it is funded entirely by citizen donations. They began in the fall of 2009 with the raising of its first mural, A Day in Edmonds by Pat Brier. Five murals were completed in 2010 and five more have been chosen to be raised during Summer of 2011.
Edmonds Historical Society & Museum The Historical Society is fortunate to have a building so well suited as a museum showplace. In 1910, a grant from the Carnegie Foundation enabled the City of Edmonds to erect a beautiful brick and stone building which served as a library on the upper floor, and as City Hall on the bottom floor. It has been placed on the National Register of Historic Buildings. Through the efforts of the Historical Society, the cooperation of the Edmonds City Council and then Mayor Harve Harrison, the building was made available to the Historical Society for museum purposes. It was formally opened on August 3, 1973.
Port of Edmonds The Port of Edmonds 665 slip boat marina was created in 1962. It is the centerpiece of the Edmonds waterfront. The pleasant promenade and sturdy covered docks have all but erased the memories of the belching smokestacks and disrepair of the area’s early industrial era. Dedicated citizens gave their time and committed their resources to construct what is today the finest and friendliest public marina in the Pacific Northwest. They set out to build a marina and they created a legacy.
Edmonds Yacht Club The Edmonds Yacht Club was founded in 1961 in conjunction with the opening of the Port of Edmonds boat harbor as a focal point for those who wished to enhance their enjoyment of boat ownership with the social camaraderie of fellow boaters. Our membership consists of a wide spectrum of boaters, from families with young children to retired grandparents and a whole bunch in between. We're an active, cruising club that conducts a cruise almost every month. We usually conduct a major cruise around the three main summer holidays, Port Orchard or Bremerton for the Memorial Day weekend, San Juan Islands during the Independence Day holiday and Port Ludlow for the Labor Day weekend. We often plan an extended cruise further north into Canada following our July 4th event.
