People often look for relaxation, beautiful landscapes, and luxury when choosing a vacation spot, correct? Imagine being able to find these qualities in your very home; home owners in Mukilteo have done just that. Mukilteo is located on the western portion of Snohomish County and lies directly on the Puget Sound. Luxury is something that Mukilteo takes pride in, with their gorgeous homes and beautiful views of the Puget Sound. “Mukilteo” may mean “good camping ground”, but it has come a long way from just being a good campground. Mukilteo ranked number ten in Money Magazine’s top 100 American, small towns to live in in 2009 and since has risen to number nine. It is also home to one of the most expensive high schools ever built in America, Kamiak High School. Mukilteo may have begun as a place to fish, but has now become the luxury corner of Snohomish County. As Mukilteo advances it still captures its heritage with its annual Mukilteo Lighthouse Festival and the lighthouses still inspire the community today.
Mukilteo is close to Everett and the busyness of the city, 5 miles from Boeing and 7 miles from the Naval Station, but is enough on the outskirts to provide a sense of relaxation and adventure. It is also just a ferry ride away from Whidbey Island making it easy to enjoy simple, island living.

Mukilteo was incorporated on May 8, 1947, but it played a large part in the formation of Snohomish County. It was in Mukilteo that the Point Elliot Treaty, between Governor Isaac Stevens and 22 Puget Sound tribes, was signed. The treaty ceded land to the United States in return for health care, education, a portion of the land, hunting and fishing rights. The treaty was signed in front of more than 2,500 Native Americans.
Mukilteo was first settled by Europeans in 1858, it became a fishing village, trading post, and an important port. The surrounding areas hosted a lumber mill, brewery, and gunpowder plant. Gunpowder can still be found today at Powder Mill Gulch.
In 1900 it was decided that there would be a lighthouse built in Mukilteo for a light and fog signal, it was completed in 1906 and still stands today. Mukilteo began to grow in 1947 after the ferry service began and a fuel storage facility for the Air Force was built on Whidbey Island.
