Bellingham is the county seat and most populous city of Whatcom County in the U. S. state of Washington. Located 52 miles southwest of Vancouver, 90 miles north of Seattle, 21 miles south of the Canada-US border, Bellingham is in between two major metropolitan areas and Vancouver, British Columbia; the city’s population was 80,885 at the 2010 United States Census. With an April 1, 2018 population estimate of 88,500 per the Washington State Office of Financial Management, Bellingham is the twelfth-most populous city in the state of Washington; the city of Bellingham was incorporated in 1903 through the consolidation of Fairhaven, Whatcom and Bellingham: four historic towns that settled beside Bellingham Bay. The bay, where the present-day city and the former town of the same name derive their names from, was named Bellingham Bay by George Vancouver upon arriving to it in June 1792, its namesake, Sir William Bellingham, was the Controller of Storekeeper Accounts of the Royal Navy during the Vancouver Expedition.
Today, Bellingham is the northernmost city with a population of more than 50,000 people in the contiguous United States. The city is a popular tourist destination known for its easy access to outdoor recreation in the San Juan Islands and North Cascades. Bellingham is undergoing redevelopment on more than 100 acres of former industrial land in its Waterfront District with a hotel, conference center, retirement living and commercial development planned for the site. Prior to Euro-American settlement, Bellingham was in the homeland of Coast Salish peoples of the Lummi and neighboring tribes; the first Caucasian immigrants reached the area in 1854. In 1858, the Fraser Canyon Gold Rush caused thousands of miners and scalawags to head north from California. Whatcom grew overnight from a small northwest mill town to a bustling seaport, the basetown for the Whatcom Trail, which led to the Fraser Canyon goldfields, used in open defiance of colonial Governor James Douglas's edict that all entry to the gold colony be made via Victoria, British Columbia.
Coal was mined in the Bellingham area from the mid-19th to the mid-20th centuries. It was Henry Roeder who had discovered coal off the northeastern shore of Bellingham Bay, in 1854 a group of San Francisco investors established the Bellingham Bay Coal Company; the mine extended to hundreds of miles of tunnels as deep as 1200 feet. It ran southwest to Bellingham Bay, on both sides of Squalicum Creek, an area of about one square mile. At its peak in the 1920s, the mine employed some 250 miners digging over 200,000 tons of coal annually, it was closed in 1955. Bellingham was incorporated on December 28, 1903 as a result of the incremental consolidation of four towns situated around Bellingham Bay during the final decades of the 19th Century. Whatcom is today's "Old Town" area and was founded in 1852. Sehome was an area of downtown founded in 1854. Bellingham was further south near Boulevard Park, founded in 1853. In 1890, Fairhaven developers bought Bellingham. Whatcom and Sehome had adjacent borders and both towns wanted to merge.
On October 27, 1903, the word "New" was dropped from the name, because the Washington State Legislature outlawed the use of the word new in city and town names. At first, attempts to combine Fairhaven and Whatcom failed, there was controversy over the name of the proposed new city. Whatcom citizens wouldn't support a city named Fairhaven, Fairhaven residents would not support a city named Whatcom, they settled on the name Bellingham, which remains today. Voting a second time for a final merger of the four towns into a single city, the resolution passed by 2163 votes for and 596 against. In the early 1890s, three railroad lines arrived, connecting the bay cities to a nationwide market of builders; the foothills around Bellingham were clearcut after the 1906 San Francisco earthquake to help provide the lumber for the rebuilding of San Francisco. In time and shingle mills sprang up all over the county to accommodate the byproduct of their work. In 1889, Pierre Cornwall and an association of investors formed the Bellingham Bay Improvement Company.
The BBIC invested in several diverse enterprises such as shipping, mining, railroad construction, real estate sales and utilities. Though their dreams of turning Bellingham into a Pacific Northwest metropolis never came to fruition, the BBIC made an immense contribution to the economic development of Bellingham. BBIC was not the only outside firm with an interest in Bellingham utilities; the General Electric Company of New York purchased Bellingham's Fairhaven Line and New Whatcom street rail line in 1897. In 1898 the utility merged into the Northern Railway and Improvement Company which prompted the Electric Corporation of Boston to purchase a large block of shares. Bellingham was the site of the Bellingham riots against East Indian immigrant workers in 1907. A mob of 400–500 white men, predominantly members of the Asiatic Exclusion League, with intentions to exclude East Indian immigrants from the work force of the local lumber mills, attacked the homes of the South Asian Indians; the Indians were Sikhs but were labelled as Hindus by much of the media of the day.
Bellingham's proximity to the Strait of Juan de Fuca and to the Inside Passage to Alaska helped keep some cannery operations here. Pacific American Fisheries, for example, shipped empty cans to Alaska, where they were packed with fish and shipped back; the mean annual salary of a wage earner in Bellingham is $46,114, below the Wa
Larrabee State Park
Larrabee State Park is a public recreation area located on Samish Bay on the western side of Chuckanut Mountain, six miles south of the city of Bellingham, Washington. It was created in 1915 as Washington's first state park; the park covers 2,748 acres and features fishing and camping as well as mountain trails for hiking and biking. It is managed by the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission. In 1913, the governor of Washington, Ernest Lister, proposed establishing a park along Chuckanut Drive, he mentioned this idea to Bellingham businessman Charles Larrabee, who agreed to deed waterfront property he owned in the area for the purpose. He died in 1914; the governor accepted the park on October 23, 1915. On November 22, 1915, Washington State Board of Park Commissioners formally accepted it as well, thus making it the first state park in Washington. Called Chuckanut State Park, the park's name was changed to Larrabee in 1923; the park began as a place used for picnicking and to access the beach.
After a series of unsuccessful caretakers and trouble from the Great Depression, the park was experiencing low attendance by the early 1930s. Things began to turn around in 1935 under the leadership of manager Dave Johnson, who spearheaded the effort to improve the park, rallying local organizations, schools and businesses to increase use of the park. In 1936, the Works Progress Administration provided $30,000 in federal funding, leading to improvements such as playground equipment, a water system, kitchen shelters; the Larrabee family donated another 1500 acres in 1937, with neighboring landowners making additional contributions. Further developments were made, the park continued to attract visitors, reaching a quarter million annual visitors by 1965; the park features a short walk down to a pebble beach with views onto Samish Bay and the San Juan Islands. For longer excursions, there are 13 miles of biking trails and 15 miles of hiking trails, including trails leading 1,940 feet up Chuckanut Mountain.
Picnicking, saltwater fishing and beachcombing along 8,100 feet of saltwater shoreline are among the other recreational options. Two mountain lakes, Fragrance Lake and Lost Lake, offer freshwater fishing for hikers; the park includes camping sites, an amphitheater, large fields.

Edison is a census-designated place in Skagit County, United States. The population was 133 at the 2010 census, it is included in the Mount Vernon -- Washington Metropolitan Statistical Area. First settled in 1869 by Ben Samson, it was named for inventor Thomas Edison. In 1897 Edison became the headquarters of a national utopian socialist project known as Equality Colony, backed by an organization known as the Brotherhood of the Cooperative Commonwealth; the socialist colony was established on 280 acres just outside Edison and it engaged in farming and timber milling and included a school as well as blacksmith and copper-working shops. The Edison-based Brotherhood published a newspaper called Industrial Freedom for national circulation to its 3,000 supporters; the socialist community folded shortly after 1903, by which time only about 100 colony remembers remained. Edison is located at 48°33′45″N 122°26′11″W. According to the United States Census Bureau, the CDP has a total area of 0.6 square miles, all of it land.
As of the census of 2000, there were 133 people, 52 households, 35 families residing in the CDP. The population density was 227.4 people per square mile. There were 55 housing units at an average density of 94.0/sq mi. The racial makeup of the CDP was 92.48% White, 3.76% Native American, 2.26% Asian, 1.50% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 0.75% of the population. There were 52 households out of which 34.6% had children under the age of 18 living with them, 59.6% were married couples living together, 7.7% had a female householder with no husband present, 30.8% were non-families. 21.2% of all households were made up of individuals and 3.8% had someone living alone, 65 years of age or older. The average household size was 2.56 and the average family size was 3.03. In the CDP, the age distribution of the population shows 24.8% under the age of 18, 4.5% from 18 to 24, 23.3% from 25 to 44, 39.1% from 45 to 64, 8.3% who were 65 years of age or older. The median age was 43 years.
For every 100 females, there were 118.0 males. For every 100 females age 18 and over, there were 122.2 males. The median income for a household in the CDP was $46,607, the median income for a family was $50,982. Males had a median income of $40,000 versus $21,719 for females; the per capita income for the CDP was $18,547. None of the population or families were below the poverty line. George Boomer and Harry Ault and members of the Equality Colony Edward R. Murrow, news journalist, graduate of Edison High School Edison High School was in use as Edison Elementary School until its replacement with a new, larger building in 1996; the only school located in Edison is Edison Elementary School, a K-8 school, built on the site of the former Edison High School.

State parks are parks or other protected areas managed at the sub-national level within those nations which use "state" as a political subdivision. State parks are established by a state to preserve a location on account of its natural beauty, historic interest, or recreational potential. There are state parks under the administration of the government of each U. S. state, some of the Mexican states, in Brazil. The term is used in the Australian state of Victoria; the equivalent term used in Canada, South Africa and Belgium, is provincial park. Similar systems of local government maintained parks exist in other countries, but the terminology varies. State parks are thus similar under state rather than federal administration. Local government entities below state level may maintain parks, e.g. regional parks or county parks. In general, state parks are smaller than national parks, with a few exceptions such as the Adirondack Park in New York and Anza-Borrego Desert State Park in California; as of 2014, there were 10,234 state park units in the United States, according to the National Association of State Park Directors.
There are some 739 million annual visits to the country's state parks. The NASPD further counts over 43,000 miles of trail, 217,367 campsites, 8,277 cabins and lodges across U. S. state parks. The largest state park system in the United States is Alaska State Parks, with over 100 sites encompassing 3.3 million acres. Many states include designations beyond "state park" in their state parks systems. Other designations might be state recreation areas, state beaches, state nature reserves; some state park systems include historic sites. The title of oldest state park in the United States is claimed by Niagara Falls State Park in New York, established in 1885; however several public parks or maintained at the state level pre-date it. Indian Springs State Park has been operated continuously by the state of Georgia as a public park since 1825, although it did not gain the title "State Park" until 1931. In 1864 Yosemite Valley and Mariposa Grove were ceded by the federal government to California until Yosemite National Park was proclaimed in 1890.
In 1878 Wisconsin set aside a vast swath of its northern forests as "The State Park" but, needing money, sold most of it to lumber companies within 20 years. The first state park with the designation of "state park" was Mackinac Island State Park in 1895, first a national park before being transferred to the state of Michigan. Many state park systems date to the 1930s, when around 800 state parks across the country were developed with assistance from federal job creation programs like the Civilian Conservation Corps and Works Progress Administration.

Whatcom County, Washington
Whatcom County is a county located in the U. S. state of Washington. As of the 2010 census, the population was 201,140, it is bordered by Canada on the north, Okanogan County on the east, Skagit County on the south, the Strait of Georgia on the west. The county seat and largest city is Bellingham; the county was created from Island County by the Washington Territorial Legislature in March 1854. It included the territory of present-day San Juan and Skagit Counties, which were organized after additional settlement, its name derives from the Lummi word Xwotʼqom, meaning "noisy water."Whatcom County comprises the Bellingham, WA Metropolitan Statistical Area. Whatcom County's northern border is the Canada–US border with the Canadian province of British Columbia. Adjoining the county on the north are five of metropolitan Vancouver's suburbs, White Rock, Langley, and, in the central Fraser Valley, Abbotsford. Several shopping malls and other services in Bellingham and elsewhere in the county are geared to cross-border shopping and recreation.
The five crossing points are two at Blaine. The Whatcom County area has known human habitation for at least twelve millenia. At least three aboriginal tribes have been identified in the area: Lummi and Semiahmoo; this area was part of the Oregon Country at the start of the nineteenth century, inhabited both by fur prospectors from Canada, Americans seeking land for agricultural and mineral-extraction opportunities. Unable to resolve which country should control this vast area, the Treaty of 1818 provided for joint control. In 1827 the Hudson's Bay Company established Fort Langley near present Lynden. By 1843, the Provisional Government of Oregon had been established, although at first there were questions as to its authority and extent. During its existence, that provisional government formed the area north of the Columbia River first into the Washington Territory, into two vast counties: Clark and Lewis. In 1852, a portion of Lewis County was partitioned off to form Thurston County, in 1853 a portion of the new county was partitioned off to form Island County.
The Washington Territory was formed as a separate governing entity in 1853. In 1854, that legislature carved several counties out of the existing counties, including Whatcom County on March 9, 1854, with area taken from Island County; the original county boundary was reduced in 1873 by the formation of San Juan County, again in 1883 by the formation of Skagit County. A Nooksack chief is the namesake of Whatcom County, taken from the word in the Nooksack language for "noisy water."In 1855 the settlers erected a blockhouse west of Whatcom Creek, to protect against forays from the aboriginal inhabitants who were attempting to defend their homelands. That year the Treaty of Point Elliott was signed, which assigned the Lummi and Semiahmoo peoples a greatly-restricted reserved area; the short-lived Fraser Canyon Gold Rush caused a short-term increase in the county's population, which swelled to over 10,000 before the bubble burst. In 1857 the federal government began the field work necessary to establish the national border between the United States and Canada, agreed on as the forty-ninth parallel in this area, which would mark the north line of Whatcom County.
As the work moved east, several of the workers chose to remain in the area as settlers. According to the U. S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 2,503 square miles, of which 2,107 square miles is land and 397 square miles is covered by water; the county includes Lake Whatcom. Physiographically, Whatcom County is an extension of the Fraser Valley or "Lower Mainland" area of British Columbia the lowland delta plain of the Fraser River. At some periods in the past, one of the Fraser River's lower arms entered Bellingham Bay near Bellingham via what is now the mouth of the Nooksack River. A small part of the county, Point Roberts, about 5 square miles, is an extension of the Tsawwassen Peninsula, bisected by the Canada–US border along the 49th parallel; the highest point in the county is the peak of the active volcano Mount Baker at 10,778 feet above sea level. The lowest points are at sea level along the Pacific Ocean.

The Amtrak Cascades is a higher-speed passenger train corridor in the Pacific Northwest, operated by Amtrak in partnership with the U. S. states of Oregon. It is named after the Cascade mountain range; the 467-mile corridor runs from Vancouver, British Columbia, through Seattle and Portland, Oregon to Eugene, Oregon. In the fiscal year 2017, Cascades was Amtrak's eighth-busiest route with a total annual ridership of over 810,000. In fiscal year 2018, farebox recovery ratio for the train was 63%; as of January 2018, 11 trains operate along the corridor each day–two between Vancouver, BC and Seattle, two between Vancouver, BC and Portland, three between Seattle and Portland. Presently, no train travels directly through the entire length of the corridor. For trains that do not travel directly to Vancouver or Eugene, connections are available on Amtrak Thruway Motorcoach services. Additionally, Amtrak Thruway Motorcoach services offer connections to other destinations in British Columbia, Idaho and Washington not on the rail corridor.
On December 18, 2017, a train derailed on the inaugural run along the new Point Defiance Bypass alignment near DuPont, Washington. Passenger train service between Seattle and Portland–the core of what became the Cascades corridor–was operated as a joint partnership by the Northern Pacific, Great Northern, Union Pacific from 1925 to 1970; when Great Northern and Northern Pacific were folded into the Burlington Northern in 1970, the reconfigured partnership continued to operate the Seattle-Portland service until the creation of Amtrak in 1971. Service between Vancouver, BC and Seattle was operated by Great Northern, between Portland and Eugene by Southern Pacific. Amtrak took over intercity passenger rail operations from the private railroads on May 1, 1971. Initial service on the Seattle–Portland portion of the corridor consisted of three round trips, with no service north to Vancouver, BC or south to Eugene; the trains were unnamed until November 1971, when the two corridor trains were named the Mount Rainier and Puget Sound and the long-distance train became the Coast Starlight.
Passenger rail service to Vancouver, BC was restarted on July 17, 1972, with the inauguration of the Seattle–Vancouver Pacific International, which operated with a dome car. The train was Amtrak's first international service; the next major change to service in the corridor came on June 7, 1977, when Amtrak introduced the long-distance Pioneer between Seattle and Salt Lake City, Utah. To maintain the same level of service between Seattle and Portland, the Puget Sound was eliminated, the schedule of the Mount Rainier was shifted; the corridor expanded south of Portland to Eugene on August 3, 1980 with the addition of the Willamette Valley, which operated with two daily round trips, financially subsidized by the State of Oregon. The Pacific International and Willamette Valley struggled to attract riders and were discontinued in September 1981 and December 1981, respectively; this left three trains on the Seattle–Portland corridor: the regional Mount Rainier and the long-distance Pioneer and Coast Starlight.
This level of service would remain unchanged for 13 years. In 1994, Amtrak began a six-month trial run of modern Talgo equipment over the Seattle–Portland corridor. Amtrak named this service Northwest Talgo, announced that it would institute a second, conventional train on the corridor once the trial concluded. Regular service began on April 1, 1994. Looking toward the future, Amtrak did an exhibition trip from Vancouver through to Eugene. Amtrak replaced the Northwest Talgo with the Mount Adams on October 30. At the same time, the state of Oregon and Amtrak agreed to extend the Mount Rainier to Eugene through June 1995, with Oregon paying two-thirds of the $1.5 million subsidy. Vancouver service returned on May 26, 1995, when the Mount Baker International began running between Vancouver and Seattle; the state of Washington leased Talgo equipment similar to the demonstrator from 1994. The Mount Rainier was renamed the Cascadia in October 1995. A third Seattle–Portland corridor train began in 1998, replacing the discontinued long-distance Pioneer.
By spring 1998, all three Seattle–Portland/Eugene trains were using leased Talgo equipment, while the Seattle-Vancouver train used conventional equipment. In preparation for the Vancouver route receiving Talgo trainsets as well, Amtrak introduced the temporary Pacific Northwest brand for all four trains, dropping individual names, effective with the spring 1998 timetable. Amtrak announced the new Amtrak Cascades brand in the fall 1998 timetable; the full Cascades brand was rolled out on January 12, 1999, following a six-week delay due to an issue with the seat designs on the Talgo trainsets. Amtrak extended a second train to Eugene in late 2000. From the mid-1990s to the May 12, 2008, Amtrak system timetable, full service dining was available on trains going north out of Seattle's King Street Station to Vancouver; the southern trains to Portland had full dining services until the May 16, 1999 system timetable. In 2004, the Rail Plus program began, allowing cross-ticketing between Sound Transit's Sounder commuter rail and Amtrak between Seattle and Everett on some Cascades trains.
The corridor has continued to grow in recent years, with another Portland–Seattle train arriving in 2006, the long-awaited through service between Vancouver and Portland, eliminating the need to transfer in Seattle, beginning on Augus
U.S. Route 99
U. S. Route 99 was a main north–south United States Numbered Highway on the West Coast of the United States until 1964, running from Calexico, California, on the US–Mexico border to Blaine, Washington, on the U. S.-Canada border. It was assigned in 1926 and existed until it was replaced for the most part by Interstate 5. Known as the "Golden State Highway" and "The Main Street of California", US 99 was important throughout much of the 1930s as a route for Dust Bowl immigrant farm workers to traverse the state. Large portions are now California's State Route 99, Oregon Route 99, 99W, 99E and Washington's SR 99; the highway connected to British Columbia Highway 99 at the Canada–US border. Highway 99 starts at the California/Mexico border, works its way up the middle of California. In Sacramento, the highway splits into 99W and 99E and they merge back together in Red Bluff; the highway is one from Red Bluff to the Oregon border. For further information: US Route 99 in California The former route of U.
S. Route 99 in Oregon follows routes signed as Oregon Route 99, 99E, 99W; the primary exception is from the California–Oregon state border north to Ashland, where U. S. 99 is named Oregon Route 273 from the state border to Exit 6 of Interstate 5. The former route is coterminous with Interstate 5 from Exit 6 to the junction of Oregon Route 99 in Ashland. Unlike California and Oregon, much of the former route of U. S. Highway 99 in Washington exists as regular city streets; the following is a simplified list of Washington counties and cities that portions of the old route traverse, along with their local names. An extensive section of this highway, from Stockton, California to Vancouver, follows closely the track of the Siskiyou Trail; the Siskiyou Trail was based on an ancient network of Native American Indian footpaths connecting the Pacific Northwest with California's Central Valley. By the 1820s, trappers from the Hudson's Bay Company were the first non-Native Americans to use the route of U.
S. Highway 99 to move between California. During the second half of the 19th Century, mule train trails, stagecoach roads, the path of the Central Pacific railroad followed the route of the Siskiyou Trail. By the early 20th Century, pioneering automobile roads were built along the Siskiyou Trail, including most notably the Pacific Highway; the Pacific Highway ran from British Columbia to San Diego, California and is the immediate predecessor of much of U. S. Highway 99; the highway was continuous pavement by the middle 1930s. By 1968, US 99 was decommissioned with the completion of I-5 in Washington and California, but the highway's phasing out began July 1, 1964 due to the passage of Collier Senate Bill No. 64 on September 20, 1963. The bill launched a major program designed to simplify California's complicated highway numbering system and eliminate concurrent postings like the aforementioned 60/70/99; the highways that replaced it are: SR 111 and SR 86 between the Mexico–US border and Indio.
I-10, replacing US 60 and US 70 between Indio and Los Angeles as well. U. S. Route 101 and SR 110 in downtown Los Angeles. I-5 from north of downtown Los Angeles to its modern-day split in Wheeler Ridge before 99's final decommissioning in 1968. In 1972, the AASHTO gave permission to the Oregon State Highway Commission to retire US 99W, US 99E and US 99 from the national system; the final segments of US 99 were decommissioned and re-organized into OR 99W, OR 99E and OR 99. All three states have replaced some portions of US 99 with state highways of the same number: Washington: 50 miles of US 99, from Fife to Everett, is now State Route 99, it is a surface-level highway with the exception of the Alaskan Way Viaduct replacement tunnel through downtown Seattle. Other portions of the old US 99 are now designated as SR 505, SR 529 and SR 530. Oregon: Most of former US 99 in Oregon now signed as Oregon Route 99; the route still provides surface-level access to many southern Oregon towns served by I-5.
It provides access to many towns in the Willamette Valley. Between Junction City and Portland, the highway splits into eastern and western routes known as OR 99E and OR 99W, respectively. For significant stretches, OR 99 shares an alignment with I-5; the highway is signed with both route numbers when this occurs. One notable exception is a stretch of OR 99E that runs between Albany and Salem, where OR 99E is cosigned along the highway. California: The 424-mile stretch between Wheeler Ridge and Red Bluff is signed as State Route 99 which makes it California's second-longest state highway behind SR 1. However, the newly enacted Historic U. S. Route 99 extends from Indio starting from Interstate 10 in the Coachella Valley all the way down the Imperial Valley to Calexico on the US-Mexico border with Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico.
