Nakashima Heritage Barn North Trailhead

Subfacility of Centennial Trail

CivicSend Slideshow Left Arrow Slideshow Right Arrow
This section of the Centennial Trail starts at Burke Street in Arlington and terminates at the trailhead located on the Snohomish / Skagit county line. 

Background
The trailhead was dedicated in November 2012 to the hard working Nakashima family who once owned the land. The barn, which was built circa 1908, is listed on the Washington State Heritage Barn Registry.

In conjunction with the trailhead opening, the Snohomish County Arts Commission, through the 1% for the arts program, commissioned the installation of several large historical photos on the exterior of the barn. 

Grand Opening
Read and view the Marysville Globe slideshow and article of the grand opening.

Projects
Several county departments and agencies are working collaboratively to develop a restoration plan for the barn, incorporating general community uses, historical displays, and recreation/interpretive programming space. Since time and resources are needed to make such improvements, Snohomish County is searching for grants and/or funding sources. Professionals are welcome to donate time to perform structural analysis and propose design improvements.
