History of Maple Falls

Just twenty-six miles from Bellingham on the Mount Baker Highway, the quaint town of Maple Falls rests peacefully. It is rich in relics of a historic industry, yet still very much endowed with natural splendor. The town was originally founded 1889 when early homesteader George Albert King and his wife, Caroline, settled near the crossroads of what is now Silver Lake Road and the Mount Baker gold trail. They had a vision for the area with lush, dense forestland in bountiful supply. King immediately saw the potential for the construction of a lumber mill.

When King allotted ten acres of land for a town site, the community immediately saw rapid population. With remnant prospectors of the dwindling Mount Baker Gold Rush, in search of new opportunities for work. Maple Falls quickly became a center of logging and milling activity in the Pacific Northwest, establishing itself as an important railroad stop in a booming local lumber business. At one point in time, Maple Falls was on its way to becoming the next bustling metropolis of the Pacific Northwest. However, in 1924,misfortune struck when the railroad raised the cost of shipping timber to the market. This caused several lumber companies in the area to die out. Maple Falls never realized its full potential as an economic hotspot, but it leaves behind stories, memories, and artifacts of a vibrant and colorful piece of Washington history.

Today, Maple Falls exists as a small, tranquil community, tucked snugly into the folds of the scenic Mount Baker landscape. The contemporary attractions to Maple Falls are of a new sort: vacationers, tourists, and skiers flock to the area to take part in the sights, sounds, and smells of this glorious slice of backcountry paradise. Maple Falls hasn’t recanted any of its natural beauty. Silver Lake remains a pristine community gem, with beautiful scenery and healthy populations of trout available for seasonal fishing. The surrounding evergreen forestry remains an excellent destination for vacationing campers and hikers. Mt. Baker ever presently overlooks the town, beckoning new prospects of climbing, skiing, and adventuring.
