Back in 1889, the 100 acres that are now the site of the Alderwood Mall, were purchased by William Morrice, and at the time, it was a remote area of Snohomish County, inhabited by only a few pioneer families. In the early 20th century, Lynnwood became a hub for logging, and the area that now stands as the city of Lynnwood was owned by The Puget Mill Company.
