If you want to understand Washington state's logging history, start in Sedro-Woolley. Logging is not a thing of the past in Sedro-Woolley. You'll still see loggers walking into Oliver-Hammer to buy cork boots and hickory shirts.

Get in[edit]

By Car: Take Highway 20 east from Burlington. By Train: Amtrak runs buses and trains from Seattle daily to Mount Vernon. From Mount Vernon, take the 90X bus to Sedro-Woolley.

Get around[edit]

SKAT transit bus is free and goes all around Skagit County.


Enjoy the old-time logging equipment such as the Mac Yarder “Little Tugger” and the Steam Donkey that depict Sedro-Woolley’s history, and out on Highway 20 is the old steam train, Engine Number 2, that in past years acted as the City’s Visitor’s Center.

Every year on the 4th of July, Sedro-Woolley hosts a chainsaw carving contest. The city buys several sculptures each year and displays them around town. They now have more than 25 carvings to see.



  • Oliver-Hammer Clothes Shop. Since 1921, Oliver-Hammer Clothes Shop has provided working men and women with quality outdoor and work clothing at a fair price.


  • Hal's Drive In. A legend.
  • Iron Skillet. Great food, lousy service (they say).


  • Cascade Pizza. Live music, beer, pizza. Twisted Sister played here!
