Granite Falls is a city in Snohomish County, Washington, United States. It is located between the Pilchuck and Stillaguamish rivers in the western foothills of the Cascade Range, northeast of Lake Stevens and Marysville. The city is named for a waterfall on the river that is located north of downtown on the Stillagumish River.
Before the arrival of European settlers, the area that is now Granite Falls was used by Natives to portage their canoes between fishing grounds. The first permanent European settler was Joseph Sous Enas, who staked a homestead claim on land south of the present city. The city was officially incorporated on December 21, 1903.
Each year, the Granite Falls community celebrates holidays and holds special events. A Herb Fair is held annually in May. The main city festival, Railroad Days, is held on the first Saturday in October.
In the 21st century, Granite Falls is focused on attracting visitors to the natural environment and recreational opportunities along the Mt. Loop Highway. Expanded housing development has brought an increased population of families who commute to Everett, Seattle, and the Eastside to work.
