Index is a town in Snohomish County, Washington, United States. Index is located 1 mile northeast of U.S. Route 2 (US 2), which connects Everett to the Skykomish Valley and Stevens Pass.
Prior to settlement by westerners, the Skykomish Indians lived in the area between Sultan and Index. They spoke Lushootseed; fishing the Skykomish River was an important part of their economy. The Skykomish had a village along the north bank of the river named xɬ'xausalt, located at the present site of Index.
A gold strike in 1889 at nearby Monte Cristo fueled another influx of prospectors and settlers. The town is named for nearby Mount Index. Index was officially incorporated on October 11, 1907
For many years, the Red Men Hall fraternal lodge, the largest building in town, served as the center for social life. It collapsed in 2009 after a severe snowstorm and was subsequently demolished. Another historic building in Index, the Bush House, was named an endangered landmark by the Washington Trust for Historic Preservation.
