Edmonds has a population of approximately 42,000 people. Established 100 years ago as a logging town, Edmonds is known for its picturesque location, friendly neighborhoods, well-respected school district, and a growing community college. Many homes offer breathtaking views of Puget Sound, lush forests, and the majestic Olympic mountains. Thanks to its prime location, Edmonds is a short drive away from the best that the Seattle area has to offer - including museums, restaurants, theaters, professional and college sports, the vibrant waterfront, the Space Needle, and recreation. http://www.edmondswa.com
