About Mount Vernon

Mount Vernon is a town in Skagit County, Washington, United States. The population was 26,232 at the 2000 census. It is one of two principal cities of and included in the Mount Vernon-Anacortes, Washington Metropolitan Statistical Area. It is the county seat of Skagit County. Downtown Mount Vernon is known for its annual Tulip Festival Street Fair which is part of the Skagit ValleyTulip Festival. The climate of Skagit County is similar to that of northern France. While millions of tulips are grown in the Skagit Valley, none are shipped to the European Union, which has strict import-export laws that protect its markets. In 1998, Mount Vernon was rated the #1 "Best Small City in America" by the New Rating Guide to Life in America's Small Cities.

History

Jasper Gates and Joseph Dwelley first settled on the banks of the Skagit River, where the town of Mount Vernon now lies, in 1870. Later on, Harrison Clothier came to the community to teach school and join in business with a former student, E.G. English. They were later recognized as the town's founders. Mount Vernon was officially incorporated on July 5, 1893.

The town was named after Mount Vernon, the plantation estate of George Washington.

Notable local people, living and dead

Notable buildings

The Lincoln Theater on First Street in downtown Mount Vernon was built in 1926. Originally a vaudeville and silent movie theater, the Lincoln now hosts live performances, concerts and showcases classic as well as contemporary movies year-round. The theater is also one of 98 theaters in the United States which still possesses its original Wurlitzer theatre organ, which is often played prior to a show.

Flood Control and Waterfront Redevelopment

Since this town was founded, the downtown area of Mount Vernon bordering the Skagit River has been plagued by flooding, especially during times of heavy rain. Each time the water rises above a certain level, citizens must join to build a sandbag wall that stretches six city blocks and can be as high as five feet tall. In the spring of 2007, the town council authorized the mayor to purchase a mobile flood wall from Norway-based company AquaFence, the first such flood wall sold in the United States. The flood wall is four feet high and can be assembled in as little as three hours by a handful of volunteers as opposed to the up to 12 hours and hundreds of volunteers required by the traditional sandbag wall. The flood wall is meant to be a temporary solution while the town explores ways to build a permanent flood wall to remove the downtown area from FEMA's 100-year flood plain maps.

After adequate flood control is in place, the Citizen’s Advisory Committee will begin to implement plans to enhance the town's use of the waterfront, which is currently used mostly for parking. Current plans call for a promenade with condos or mixed-use development facing the river.

Transportation

The new Skagit Station, built in 2004, delivers true multimodal transportation to a rapidly growing region. Commuters and travelers can switch between modes of transportation in downtown Mount Vernon. The station offers stops for the Skagit Transit bus, Greyhound bus, Amtrak Cascades rail and local taxi. The new Everett Express bus route connects to the Sounder Train in Everett.

Skagit Regional Airport, five miles (8 km) northwest, fills much of the area's general aviation needs. The closest commercial airport with scheduled passenger service is Bellingham International Airport, 25 miles (40 km) north.
