Ferndale History

Welcome to Ferndale

Welcome to Ferndale, WA, one of the fastest growing cities in the Northwest!  With a population of just under 14,000 friendly folks, Ferndale is the best of what the Pacific Northwest has to offer.  Located almost equally between Seattle, WA and Vancouver, BC, we boast fishing, hiking trails, boating, camping, hunting, skiing, golfing, historical parks and so much more and that’s just within minutes of our front door.  We have great schools, affordable housing, commercial land for your business, and a beautiful Historic downtown.  Unlike it’s neighbors, Ferndale is considered a more industrial or manufacturing city.  With strong economic growth, small town charm and stunning view of Mt. Baker and the San Juan Islands, it’s one of the most desirable cities to live in in Whatcom County.
