Mukilteo was the site of the 1855 Peace Treaty signed between Territorial Governor Isaac Stevens and 82 Indian leaders representing 22 Pacific Northwest tribes. The treaty ceded the coastal lands from Seattle to the Canadian border to the U.S. government. A monument in remembrance of the signing of the Peace Treaty is located at the Mukilteo Community Center, and a copy of the treaty peace treaty is displayed in the Mukilteo Light Station. Mukilteo became the county's first trading post and preceded Snohomish as the first county seat. Today Mukilteo retains its friendly, old-fashioned hospitality and spectacular setting. Visitors will enjoy exploring the delightful shops and restaurants of this quaint seaside town, as well as the waterfront with its parks and the beautifully restored 1906 Mukilteo lighthouse that overlooks the Puget Sound. The Mukilteo-Clinton Ferry provides the opportunity for a great walk-on boat ride (approximately 60 minutes round trip) or take your car for a full-day excursion to Whidbey Island, Deception Pass or the Olympic Peninsula.
