Economy[edit]

The former Hotel Royal, farther north on the east side of the N. Olympic Ave downtown strip.

Timber[edit]

From its founding, Arlington was dependent on timber harvesting and timber products. It was once dubbed the "Shingle Capital of the World" owing to the shingle mills, sawmills, and logging camps in the vicinity.

Railroad[edit]

Historically, Arlington was a railroad town with several different rail connections. It was located on the Northern Pacific(NP) mainline that stretched from the Canadian border through Sedro-Woolley to Snohomish. Arlington also had a branch line running east to Darrington that primarily carried timber products. Both of these lines were abandoned by NP's successor Burlington Northern in the 1980s due to declining industry. While it is not as rail dependent as it once was, Arlington still maintains a rail connection with BNSF Railways via a spur line. Remnants of Arlington's railroad history can still be seen with the various trestles and signal equipment still in place. Snohomish County is in the process of converting the abandoned rail right of way into bike/hike trails.

Farming[edit]

  • Arlington Cooperative Association
  • Pioneer Creamery, 1901
  • Arlington Condensery, 1920
  • Snohomish County Dairy Association
  • Darigold
  • Red Rooster Route

Aviation[edit]

The city owns the Arlington Municipal Airport, located three miles (5 km) southwest of Arlington, which is home to the annual Arlington Fly-In which draws aircraft from all across the US and Canada.

Notable aviation accidents[edit]

On October 19, 1959 a Boeing 707-227 registration N7071 crashed on a Stillaguamish Riverbed northeast of town. It was the first of five Boeing 707s destined for delivery to Braniff International Airways. A Boeing test pilot and Braniff Captain were killed in an emergency landing after three of the aircraft's four engines were torn off during a training maneuver.[10]

Medical[edit]

Districts and neighborhoods[edit]

Smokey Point[edit]

Smokey Point is a bustling residential, commercial, and industrial community. The northeast portion of this community was annexed by Arlington in 1999.

Gleneagle[edit]

The largest planned development in Arlington, Gleneagle is a 1,037-unit neighborhood and HOA built in and around the Gleneagle Golf Course. Consisting of single-family homes and townhouses, Gleneagle was primarily built up from 1987 through 2002 and houses approximately 30% of Arlington's population.

High Clover Park[edit]

High Clover Park is a planned neighborhood and development, consisting of 162 single family homes. It is situated northwest of the Arlington Municipal Airport.

Arlington Heights[edit]

Arlington Heights is a residential area situated east of Arlington on the triangular raised plateau bordered on the east by the Cascade Mountains, on the northwest by the North Fork of the Stillaguamish River, and on the southwest by the South Fork of the Stillaguamish River. In the Cascade foothills east of Arlington Heights is the Jim Creek Naval Radio Station, a very low frequency radio array for communication with submarines. It is largely decommissioned but still in use as a recreation facility by Navy personnel and families. Arlington Heights is outside the municipal boundaries of Arlington, but its residents have Arlington postal addresses and their children attend Arlington schools. Some areas in Arlington Heights have excellent views of Whitehorse and Three Fingers Mountains.
