At the turn of the century: Lynden Pioneer Museum offers a historic look at the small Washington town

You have to love driving randomly through a town and several windmills are spotted. Some of the store fronts have a Dutch look about them. Near the east end of Front Street and the business district is a museum. You would enjoy a great unplanned visit to the Lynden Pioneer Museum.

Lynden is a small town, population 13,952 in 2016. It is in northwest Washington and a few miles south of the U.S.-Canada border. Lunch at the Dutch Mothers Restaurant serves authentic Dutch food such as pannekoek (pancakes), Dutch split pea soup and Dutch apple pie.

The town’s claim to fame includes one of the rare times in the world where the entrance to town is between two cemeteries. Lynden at one time held the world record for the most churches per mile and capita.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
