Welcome to Downtown
Downtown Mount Vernon is one of those gems you don’t see so often anymore. The city was established in 1889 and is the hub of Skagit County. In the downtown core, you’ll find charming old buildings with a few newer ones mixed in. Mount Vernon is part of the National Trust Main Street Program. This status helps the downtown enhance and maintain its unique charm.
You’ll find all kinds of shopping, restaurants and service businesses in downtown Mount Vernon. The variety of shops and dining will suit just about everyone.
Help Keep Your Neighbors working! We encourage you to shop and dine locally!!
