The Early Railroads of Whatcom County


Local history of the early railroads that shaped Whatcom County and the Northwest corner of the United States.

SKU: 97817343166605 Category:


This is the story of the early railroads in Whatcom County, the furthest northwest county in the State of Washington. Four transcontinental railroads would eventually serve Whatcom County. Before these large railroads reached Whatcom County, four small railroads were incorporated in the county; the Bellingham Bay & British Columbia Railway Co., the Bellingham Bay Railroad and Navigation Co., the Fairhaven & Southern Railroad Co. and the Bellingham Bay & Eastern Railroad Co. This is not just the story of the building of these railroads, but includes the politics and real estate speculation involved as the major transcontinental railroads moved westward. And, we share how the railroads impacted the communities that they served. We hope you enjoy this wonderful story, yes about the railroads but even more about the people of that era who were from so many different places and built the community we enjoy today.
