Okay, you travel detectives, where is this? And what is this?
If you travel north on I-5 and take exit 207 (just north of Marysville) you’ll see this relic of the past……………a stump house!
Yes, in days of yore in Washington, when logging was king and giant cedars trees prized above all, the cutting of these woody monsters left huge stumps. These stumps were often hollow in the middle and so all an enterprising settler needed to do was put a roof over the stump and viola! Home sweet home. Kinda. Sorta.
Google the words “stump homes Washington” and then images, and you’ll be amazed at those old images of our pioneer ancestors’ ingenuity.
