Welcome to Lynden! 125 years is a long time, at least if you live in the western portion of the United States. Only around 4,000 Americans lived in all of the Oregon territories when Holden and Phoebe Judson began their journey toward their “ideal home” along the banks of the Nooksack River in the mid-1800s. To say friends and family were few and far between is not just a “you know what they say” moment; it was fact. But all these many years later, the Judsons’ grit and determination, along with the efforts of many, many other persons of strong mind and spirit over the generations, has allowed us to call Lynden our “ideal home” too. It is our privilege this year to help the community celebrate Lynden becoming a city in 1891, so named by “Mother of Lynden” Phoebe Judson. So much of Ms. Phoebe’s attitude and actions remain a part of our community fabric: The love and concern for family and friends; a “can-do” spirit of civic involvement; reaching out with a helping hand to those in need; the importance of education; and a love for all, regardless of social, religious or financial standing. Yes, these are many of the wonderful traits that, though we may occasionally forget to demonstrate them, have bound our generations together for a long, long time. Within these pages you will see just a small reflection of our community, but some of the unique, special, interesting people and places that now occupy the land of the Nooksack Valley where the Judson family sought to make a better life for themselves. It is our hope that the Lynden community today is just as Phoebe wanted it. For although the commerce, the people and the buildings change, the hearts of the people can, and should, remain full of the love and concern for their fellow man that this pioneer woman brought west so many years ago.

Sincerely,

The Lynden Story

T

he Lynden story is deeply embedded in the American story. Hardy and bold dreamers from many ethnic, religious and cultural traditions, eager for a place to call their own, became the settlers of the West and the Pacific Northwest. They first traveled by waterway, then chose land that looked promising, cut down trees and planted crops, built homes and shops, farms, churches and schools. Among these adventurers were Holden and Phoebe Judson, who came west in a wagon train on the Oregon Trail in 1853. Amazing Phoebe gave birth to a son while en route on the trail in Wyoming. The couple and their growing family lived for a time in the Puget Sound region, but they were driven on by “the pioneer’s search for an ideal home,” as Phoebe famously titled her life’s memoirs later.

Phoebe Judson, left

They came in 1871 to the Nooksack River cabin of a Col. Patterson to care for his two mixed-race daughters, and on this gentle rise of land from the river, “Mother of Lynden” Phoebe Judson decided that she had indeed found her ideal home. Other families soon followed to this spot: Hawley, O’Neil, Tremaine, Muenscher, Kildall, Klocke, Nelson. Many of these settlers had close relations with the native Salish people who had lived in the area for generations. One obstacle to good commerce was a big natural logjam clogging the Nooksack River at Ferndale. The Judsons enlisted the help needed for removal, allowing steamboats now to chug freely upriver to Lynden. The U.S.-Canada boundary at the 49th parallel just north of Lynden had been marked off in 1858, and by the 1890s the Guide Meridian Road was being created as the straight line north from Bellingham to the border. A railroad spur came to Lynden in 1906. The Northwest Normal School, a college led by Prof. Bradley, existed in Lynden from 1886 to 1892 and the state legislature decided that such a center of learning should be in Bellingham. It is now known as Western Washington University.

William Lauckhart Sr. could be considered the first Dutchman to have put his roots down at Lynden, around 1883. But as eager immigrants heard of the mild climate and fertile soil here, a steady stream followed in the late 1890s and onward. Douwe J. Zylstra emerged as a key figure in selling land and aiding the early assimilation of his fellow Hollanders, who established Christian schools and Reformed churches. 1914 was a stand-out year in Lynden’s development. R.B. LeCocq opened a law practice whose members today still represent the city’s legal interests. (His brother Irwin LeCocq largely built the community Peoples State Bank and also served as Lynden’s mayor.) William Waples built the massive building at Fifth and Front streets to house his Lynden Department Store where generous credit helped many a family through the Great Depression. And Sol Lewis bought the Lynden Tribune and began to grow it into a highly regarded community newspaper. In 1920 thousands of people stood to watch horse racing — and could bet on their favorites — at the emerging fairgrounds west of town. The Northwest Washington Fairgrounds is now a key economic driver for Lynden yearround.

The Lynden Story In 1924 the city built the first treatment plant to purify water drawn from the Nooksack River. That plant, modified in the 1950s, did its job all the way to September 2015 when a new $30 million plant came online. In 1928 the building that would serve 80 years as City Hall was built; it is now transformed into the Jansen Art Center. The core of what is now the Lynden Pioneer Museum began as the John Deere dealership for northwest Washington in 1917. In the 1940s the well-preserved 236-acre property of Hans and Lida Berthusen was entrusted to the City of Lynden to be enjoyed by all as a permanent park. Now celebrating 125 years from 1891 incorporation, Lynden aims to build into the future upon the strong heritage of its past.

Lynden Chamber of Commerce Directory Accommodations

Williams Hotel and Lanning House, 1900s

T

he mix of accommodations for travelers — or simply locals looking for a fun break from the norm — has started growing in Lynden.

The opening of The Inn at Lynden (360-746-8597, www.innatlynden.com) has led the charge. Located in a completely remodeled and updated historic downtown building, the inn offers 35 boutique rooms, each different from each other. The inn has a mix of mezzanine-level rooms and second-story rooms, all with natural light filtering into the smartly furnished setting. Located within the completely updated and remodeled Waples Mercantile Building, the old timber, brick and concrete of old was restored to give the entire building a completely fresh look for downtown Lynden. Originally built in 1914 and home to Lynden’s historic Lynden Department Store, the key downtown structure went through many changes over the decades. A fire in 2008 completely gutted the structure and left its future in limbo. Local owners took over the cause, restoring the building well beyond its original charm, reclaiming wood not damaged in the fire, restoring timber beams and exposing original brick and concrete throughout, including within the 35-room inn. The inn’s ground-floor lobby, which connects to other ground-floor businesses and restaurants, offers an oversize fireplace. Set for a likely 2016 opening is another downtown Lynden attraction, the Dutch Village Inn (www.

Lynden KOA

dutchvillageinn.net), with completely renovated rooms designed in authentic Dutch décor with nods from historic Lynden pioneer families. Located inside Lynden’s famous 72-foot-tall windmill, the Dutch Village Inn offers a novel treat for any traveler. And visitors seeking a little more rugged Lynden KOA is a perfect option (360-354-4772, www.koa.com). The Lynden KOA has a family story too. Longtime Californians, the Martin family found the Lynden site after Dan Martin was involved in trucking for 20 years. With Dan and wife Shirley sitting in a local donut shop, a happenstance meeting led them to fly up and check out the campground. Thirty-four years later the campground is still in the family with fun activities for all ages, a unique camping experience that includes those “Kabin” experiences alongside RV sties aplenty and tent sites and events on site. All with close proximity to the scenery of Washington and Canada, the Lynden KOA has campers returning year after year. Apart from the new accommodations downtown, there’s still a variety of options throughout town. For those with Vacation Internationale membership, the championship 18-hole Homestead Golf & Country Club offers a golf getaway in the heart of town. A small windmill greets visitors to The Windmill Inn on the edge of town, located conveniently on State Route 539 (360-354-3424, www. windmillinnlynden.com).

Lynden Chamber Agriculture of Commerce Directory

A

t the beginning of Lynden’s history, there were dairy cows. Not long after, once the trees were cleared, hops for beer-making became a cash crop. Later, chickens and eggs were a hot selling commodity for Lynden. At different times over the years, farmers tried their hand at growing sugar beets, peas, beans, sweet corn and cucumbers, as well as different types of fruit.

The original story of Lynden’s founding tells of 20 head of cattle and a milking barn being part of the Col. Patterson cabin site that Holden and Phoebe Judson and their four children came to in 1871 as the first permanent settlers.

Looking back on agriculture in Lynden’s 125th anniversary year, just about anything may have been raised in the fertile soil of the Nooksack River basin.

Receipts of butterfat at the Lynden Creamery Co. had risen by 14 percent, or 370,000 pounds in one year, stockholders were told at their 1915 annual meeting.

“Within the memories of the oldest inhabitants of the Valley of the Nooksack, such a thing as a crop failure is a thing absolutely unknown,” stated the Lynden Pioneer Press already in 1888.

Today the farms of Whatcom County, once numbering in the thousands, are fewer in number but larger in size as cost factors and world markets squeeze the bottom line. About 100 dairies are the most for any county in Washington.

The Judsons stayed, and so did Lynden’s association with milking cows.

Darigold, a regional cooperative, receives milk from local member producers at the Lynden drying plant, which added a $22 million powdermaking tower in 2012-13. Meanwhile, some farms innovate with their own labeled dairy products delivered directly to supermarkets and specialty stores. MyShan Dairy, featuring premium Guernsey milk, is a recent start-up.

Lynden Chamber of Commerce Directory A wave of family transplants from Missouri, starting with Oscar Sheets in 1914, found the Lynden area very hospitable for berry growing. Strawberries became dominant, and generations of kids earned spending money picking in the fields — back-breaking though it might be!

On a warm summer day — from virtually the same perch that the founding families may have enjoyed overlooking the Nooksack River valley — one can still look out from Lynden and sense why this area has always been regarded an agricultural paradise.

In the 1970s the arrival of raspberry harvesting machines dramatically reset the scene. Lynden has become the center of the red raspberry growing in North America. About two-thirds of the U.S. volume for processing comes from within a 15-mile radius. The family-friendly Northwest Raspberry Festival is held in Lynden each July. Blueberries, which can also be mechanically harvested, have emerged strong and now virtually eclipse raspberries in tonnage. Seed potatoes are a valued agricultural outlier. Whatcom County, with good protective geography, is ideally suited to grow super-clean potatoes to sell to the world as seed stock.

Lynden Chamber Directory Arts andof Commerce Entertainment Lynden’s Front Street has undergone a number of changes recently, many of which highlight the city’s arts and entertainment offerings. From the Lynden Pioneer Museum to the Jansen Art Center and the Claire vg Thomas Theatre, there is plenty to choose from. Just a few doors down from the Lynden Pioneer Museum is Lynden’s newest arts and entertainment outlet, the Jansen Art Center. The center opened in 2012 and added an entirely new feel to the already active art scene in Lynden. Long gone are the cobwebs of the two buildings built in the early 1900s, now joined together as an anchor for the entire Whatcom County art community.

time or simply a few hours in a workshop setting, the “J,” as its owners have now dubbed it, has also hosted an array of live musical events. The Lynden Pioneer Museum adds its own mix of arts and entertainment, with an ever-changing display of life in the West. Housed in what was originally a farm machinery dealership, the museum opened in 1977 as the result of a project that earned Lynden designation as an official U.S. “Bicentennial community.” To make space for a rapidly growing collection, the museum added an additional building to its east side in 1982.

Highlighting the museum is one of the world’s largest collections of horse-drawn vehicles, which The Jansen Art Center is ulBarney Brothers’ Three-Ring Circus at Lynden Fair Grounds, 1936. began with the donations of lotimately a one-stop place for art cal Clydesdale horseman Fred classes and rental of art studio space.

Another delightful addition to the Lynden art scene is the Lynden Music Festival. Started in memory of community cultural icon Claire vg Thomas, the festival offers a community-wide spectacle of music each October. With venues throughout town, including the “J,” local coffee shops, retail businesses, Judson Hall, churches and the Pioneer Museum, Lynden comes to life with the sounds of music through instrument and song.

Opera House

n Lynden’s early days, the indoor gathering place for the community was “the opera house” upstairs at Fifth and Front streets. The building was known first as Judson’s store, and town founders Holden and Phoebe Judson had their 50th wedding anniversary photo taken there in 1899. But after Holden died, it was called Jamieson’s hall after the new proprietor. Hardly a grand venue, it was a large enough room with a stage to handle the local school graduations and a recital or play from time to time. In May 1910 hundreds crowded in to hear American evangelist Billy Sunday preaching in Lynden. The original building is now gone. Its replacement at 500 Front St. houses Dickson Medical Clinic and other offices. A stone plaque along Fifth details some of the history.

The Claire vg Thomas Theatre hosts multiple performances throughout the year, combining local theater groups from Lynden and surrounding cities for a diverse set of offerings. Lynden Public Schools and Lynden Christian Schools have active, prolific drama departments, offering many opportunities for quality theater throughout the year.

T

he giving spirit of folks in Lynden can be seen from the bevy of churches located within town right through to the service clubs and organizations. The Mt. Baker Rotary Club (MountBakerRotary. com) has been the most instrumental in helping shape the fortunes of those less fortunate in town, helping to build citywide facilities, including a Million Smiles Playground within the Lynden City Park, or athletic facilities at Lynden High School. Along with the Rotary Club, two Kiwanis clubs (Lynden Breakfast Kiwanis Club: 354-6947; Kiwanis Club of Lynden: 354-8697; kiwanis.org) and a Lions club (371-0718; lionwap.org/lyndenwa) also help keep up everything from local parades to student activities. Add in Toastmasters (lynden.toastmastersclubs.org) and other community-wide organizations to an active church membership that runs programs for the needy and there’s plenty of opportunities to serve, get involved and meet new people through Lynden’s active service clubs and organizations.

Recreation

L

ynden’s natural beauty and proximity to nearly every imaginable outdoor recreational draw gives Lynden residents a chance to enjoy the outdoors right in their own backyard, or within a slightly extended backyard.

Take a stroll through Lynden’s tree-lined trail system. Play a round at the picturesque Homestead golf course. Experience pioneer history at Berthusen Park. Explore the friendly Dutch town and scenic surrounding farmlands on complimentary bicycles from the brand-new Inn at Lynden. Or, if you’d rather, make the short jaunt up Mount Baker for snow sports or head just a few minutes the opposite direction for water sports on Whatcom County’s bevy of lakes, rivers and saltwater bays. The options are endless. Within Lynden is community-funded and community-built Million Smiles Playground, the premier kids’ playground in the county. Located in Lynden City Park and adjacent to Fishtrap Creek — an ideal wading zone in warmer weather — the playground offers the tallest outdoor slide in the region and imaginative fun for toddlers through elementary school-aged children. Connected by the Jim Kaemingk Sr. trail to other parts of town, you can simply hop on the paved path to wander along the creek and visit Bender Fields — home to Lynden’s organized youth and community sports, everything from kids’ soccer to city softball leagues — and the residential communities beyond. Nestled on the outskirts of town is Homestead Golf and Country Club’s championship 18-hole course, offering unmatched views of the Cascade Mountains as it winds through what was once fertile dairy land. With doglegs and hidden hazards to challenge the avid golfer, as well as wide landing areas and multiple tees for the more recreational, Homestead appeals to an array of skill levels. The course is highlighted by a beautiful 18th hole that has been voted the best par-5 finishing hole in the state and owns distinction as the only par-5 in Washington to play into an island green.  Berthusen Park, just minutes outside of town to the west, offers playgrounds, fields, walking trails through forest, a

26

shotgun club, a remote-control aircraft club and a fully restored pioneer barn on what was the Hans Berthusen 1863 homestead. The hours’ worth of walking trails give visitors a chance to take in views of the native landscape, tucked close to Bertrand Creek or even opened up to the farmlands of the west. The 240-acre park is also home to the region’s largest tractor show, and many antique steam engines and other attractions are on site year-round.

Lynden’s 1911 Championship Baseball Team

Beyond Lynden, enjoy a variety of recreational opportunities toward Mount Baker, from mountain biking to alpine hiking. A trip west toward the saltwater shoreline presents another set of recreational choices, including kayaking, ocean fishing, clamming, hiking, birding and simply walking along the beach. With lakes peppering the county — Silver Lake, Padden and Whatcom, to name a few — fishing, boating, paddleboarding and more are readily available. Even a tubing trip down the Nooksack River isn’t far away. These recreational opportunities only scratch the surface of what Lynden has to offer. Whether within its own town or by using Lynden as a launching point to nearby destinations like the San Juan Islands to the west or Canada just minutes to the north, outdoor recreation is certainly alive in and around Lynden.

Restaurants Just down the street the new business, The Mill by Perfectly Paired, brings another Bellingham business north to offer fine wines and cheese (and more) in the base of Lynden’s famed 72-foottall windmill in a completely renovated space.

Drizzle Olive Oil & Vinegar

T

he downtown Lynden restaurant scene has experienced unprecedented growth with the addition of new eateries of all styles.

The opening of downtown Lynden’s Waples Mercantile Building, a complete remodel of a 1914-built historic multi-level department store into a mixed-use retail and inn has helped lead some of the growth, moving three new restaurants into the building. Avenue Bread, Drizzle Olive Oil & Vinegar and Overflow Taps have all made their home in the newly opened Waples Building, while The Mill by Perfectly Paired creates another prime stop down the street in the freshly remodeled Dutch Village Mall. Avenue Bread has proven popular in Whatcom County for decades with multiple locations in Bellingham. The move to Waples marks their first entry into Lynden, providing housemade breads, soups, breakfasts and plenty more in downtown Lynden. Drizzle may be known for its olive oil and vinegar tasting room, but locally sourced charcuterie (fine meats and cheeses) plates from their local chef bring another Bellingham business into Lynden. Overflow Taps, a locally established craft beer and wine stop donates 25 cents of every pint to fund organizations fighting the global water crisis.

34

But the new restaurants downtown only touches the tip of what Lynden has to offer. Find traditional Dutch baked goods at the Lynden Dutch Bakery or even a new style of desserts from the bakery’s new Just Desserts, located in Lynden’s Fairway Center. Old-fashioned diner fare doesn’t get better than Fairway Café and there are plenty of steaks to go around at Steakhouse 9 Restaurant and Lounge at Homestead Golf Course. Downtown, the bakery and Dutch Mothers Restaurant offer traditional Dutch favorites. Downtown you will also find Greek and Italian (Syros), Thai (Chandara House), seafood (Jofish), meat pies (Good to Go) and more. Expect a bevy of Mexican-inspired restaurants throughout town, burgers (Grant’s), pizza (Westside and Milt’s), and Japanese (Nami). Those searching for some southern comfort can find Jake’s Western Grill in the Lynden Towne Plaza. And if a sweet tooth is more your thing, check out Edaleen Dairy’s retail stop for homemade ice cream from the Lynden dairy, along with an array of treats and sandwiches. Of course, if you’re in a hurry, bakery and coffee-centric items can be readily found at some of Lynden’s local coffee shops or its homegrown The Woods Coffee regional chain, with three locations in Lynden.

ynden’s education system excels, both with academic prowess and diversity of options. Some of the best public and private K-12 schools in the state sit inside the city limits and one of the state’s top universities is just 20 miles outside of Lynden. And local schools know a thing or two about extra-curricular activities too, with both Lynden and Lynden Christian high schools winning multiple state titles in the last year and the Lynden football team, Lynden Christian girls basketball and volleyball teams and Lynden boys basketball team showcasing some of the best historic and current records in the state. And that doesn’t even mention the success of the local high school drama and music scene.

Students and teachers stand outside the Lynden Grade School at Eighth and Edson streets in 1893.

The Lynden School District boasts three K-5 elementary schools, a middle school, a high school and a parent-partnership campus. With enrollment of about 2,600 full-time equivalent students, the district has over 150 classroom teachers. Lynden Christian School offers a preschool-4 elementary school, 5-8 middle school and a high school, with all three buildings located on one campus in the heart of Lynden. With about 1,100 students, the school also has a Bellingham

campus. Other private schools in the area include Ebenezer Christian School, located north of town and founded in 1910, Covenant Christian School, Cornerstone Christian School and many parents active in the 600-family Whatcom Homeschool Association. Western Washington University, Whatcom Community College and Bellingham Technical College are all located just minutes from Lynden in Bellingham.

Transportation

L

ynden is located close to Guide Meridian Road, which runs straight from the Aldergrove border crossing to Bellingham. Lynden is just a few miles from the border and about 10 miles from Bellingham and just a little farther to Interstate 5.

The Lynden Airport is nestled inconspicuously among the neighborhoods of north Lynden, complete with homes boasting their own private planes and airport access. The city of Lynden operates the general aviation airport located on just over 12 acres at the north end of town between Depot and Benson roads. The single runway is 40 feet wide and 2,425 feet long with a 20 foot wide taxiway to the south. Jansen Field is at elevation 106 with a visual approach. The airport has a system which provides approach guidance, a lighted wind indicator, a rotating beacon, and an automated unicom that provides up to date wind and temperature information. Houses located on both the north and

46

south sides have access to the airport through agreements with the city and most have hangars for their private planes. The city and members of the local pilot’s association normally host a summer open house for the public in August with food and refreshments, aircraft displays, and airplane rides for children. For further information, contact Steve Banham, public works director, at 354-3446. There is a Whatcom Transportation Authority bus station located near the west entrance to town, along with a sizable parkand-ride. WTA provides bus service in Lynden, along with direct routes to Bellingham’s Cordata Station every 90 minutes six days per week, with connecting service to Bellis Fair Mall, Whatcom Community College, downtown Bellingham, and the downtown transit 1936 ad in the Lynden Tribune station (providing additional service throughout the community). WTA also provides specialized transportation throughout Whatcom County for those who are unable to use the regular transit system due to physical or mental disabilities, for those 65 or older without other transportation available to them, and for visitors not eligible to ride other para-transit systems because of a disability. For more information or for schedules, call WTA at 6767433 or visit www.ridewta.com. To request a ride for the specialized service, call 733-1144, TTY 676-6844 or 354-3633.

Lynden Chamber Commerce Directory Welcomeof New Residents!

A

wonderful program offered by the Lynden Chamber of Commerce is the Welkom Basket. This program was put in place to welcome new residents to town and is a great tool for them to get to know their new home. Each basket is filled with coupons and gifts from local businesses and is personally delivered to the residents by our wonderful Lynden Ambassadors, Ada Voskuilen and Virgi Diephuis. Ada and Virgi share about Lynden, and also take that time to get to know each new family, giving us the ability to discover why they moved here, and what they are looking for. This program has proven to be an invaluable tool in helping us make the families feel welcome, and it is also the chance for the new residents to get to know Lynden and be reminded why this is such a great place to live. It also gives our members a chance to get information about their business out to the community in a fun and inviting way.

To request a Welkom Basket or to be a part of this great program contact the Lynden Chamber of Commerce at 360-354-5995.
