The Blackman House is the only building still standing from the heyday of the Blackmans who moved from Maine to Snohomish in 1872. The Blackman Brothers sank in deep debt because their lumber mill in Bradley, Maine, wasn’t making money, had to declare bankruptcy, prompting them to pack up and move to Snohomish. After settling in Snohomish, the Blackman Brothers started their successful logging operation along the Stillaguamish Lake. The house also contains objects belonging to families of early Snohomish settlers.
