Lynnwood is a city in Snohomish County, Washington, United States. The population was 36,485 at the 2010 census, making it the fourth largest in Snohomish County and thirtieth largest in Washington State.
Early in the twentieth century, the area occupied by Lynnwood today was owned by the Puget Mill Company.Puget Mill began selling five-acre "stump farms" and in 1917 they developed a 30-acre poultry farm, known as the Demonstration Farm, to demonstrate how a farmer might make a five-acre tract pay for itself. The Demonstration Farm was located next to the Interurban Railway that ran between Seattle and Everett. Lynnwood was officially incorporated on April 23, 1959, from a larger unincorporated area called Alderwood Manor. Even today you can see many of the original 80-year-old homes, and old buildings.
