Why Marysville is a Great Place to Live…
Marysville was established in 1872 as a trading post by James P. Comeford and incorporated and welcomed the completed Great Northern Railway.
The growth of strawberry fields in Marysville led to the city being nicknamed the “Strawberry City” in the 1920s.
The city experienced its first wave of suburbanization in the 1970s and 1980s, resulting in the development of new housing and commercial areas. Between 1980 and 2000, the population of Marysville increased five-fold. In the early 2000s, annexations of unincorporated areas to the north and east expanded the city to over 20 square miles (52 km2) and brought the population over 60,000.
Marysville is home to the Tulalip Indian Reservation.
Mount Pilchuck, whose 5,300-foot-high (1,600 m) peak can be seen from various points in the city, appears in the city’s flag and seal.
