Bit About Lynnwood, Washington
officially incorporated on April 20, 1959, from a larger
unincorporated area called Alderwood Manor. The area was
originally platted, developed, and sold as 1-acre (4,000 m2)
lots designed for raising chickens. Even today you can see
many of the original 80 year old homes that were the chicken
ranches, and old bulidings. Former Masonic Temple bulit
in 1919 still stands today near 36th Ave W and 196th St Sw
"Lynnwood" comes from a developer from Seattle who planned
to build something at Highway 99 and Alderwood Road (now
196th ST SW). He named the building "Lynn" for his wife and
"wood" for Alderwood. Many other stores around took the name
Lynnwood and were known as the Lynnwood Business District.
Some buildings still stand such as Lynnwood Center (home to
Safeway) and the first to say "Lynnwood", The Lynnwood
Lumber Company (now a pawn shop).
center of the incorporated city was the intersection of
State Route 99 (Highway 99) and State Route 524 (196th
Street SW). When I-5 was built, the exit onto 44th Avenue
West became the main Lynnwood exit. At that time, the city
zoned the area East of 48th W, south of 194th SW, and west
of the new freeway for commercial development, and the
current city center area was born, with the construction of
the Fred Meyer store, a new hotel called the Landmark (now
La Quinta Inns & Suites) on 200th and 44th, and other
planned construction of I-405 bringing more people by the
city, developers built the Alderwood Mall, effectively
moving the main commercial area even farther east.
Alderwood Mall continues to expand. New additions to it in
2005 included a Borders book and music store, a Pottery
Barn, and a large Loews theatre.
Convention Center opened in 2005 at 196th St. SW and 36th
Ave. W. The convention center and Alderwood Mall create many
tourists and business in Lynnwood.
