Preserving Mill Creek’s History
Work is now underway on a project to preserve Mill Creek’s history – one decade at a time.

Earlier this year, the Art and Beautification Board began discussing art projects to enhance the City’s culture. One idea rose to the top and has gained traction this year due to a grant from the Snohomish County Historic Preservation Commission Community Heritage Program. It is to create a timeline of the City as a work of art.

Residents are encouraged to submit memorable moments in Mill Creek’s history for possible inclusion using the form below.
