Historic Downtown

Visiting Sedro-Woolley’s historic downtown is a trip back in time. Brick buildings, fronted with comfortable wood benches beneath old-fashioned light poles are the backdrop for the numerous chainsaw carvings and murals depicting the city’s colorful past.

Skagit State Bank, Wells Fargo, Bank of America, US Bank, Peoples Bank and Washington Federal all have branches in Sedro-Woolley. There are also two major grocery stores, one with a full-service deli.

Everything from fast food to robust dinners is available in Sedro-Woolley, with over a dozen restaurants offering Mexican, Italian, Chinese and Thai foods, as well as steak and seafood, pizza, deli and bakery specialties, and espresso.

A fitting addition to the 1900’s setting, the City of Sedro-Woolley and the Sedro-Woolley Chamber of Commerce developed a town square which promises to become the focal point for visitors and residents alike. Hammer Heritage Square offers a sixty-foot tall clock tower complete with chimes, public address system, gazebo, waterfall with a garden, tables, park benches, chain saw carving, a pathway featuring personalized bricks from residents and businesses, and public restrooms.
