COMMEMORATING:
The hospitality of early Mukilteo residents to families of Japanese workers at Crown Lumber Co.

The Japanese lived near this marker in an area known as Japanese Gulch from 1903 until the 1930's, when the sawmill closed during the Great Depression.

The origami crane is a symbol of peace and happiness. This memorial honors the warm friendship of Japanese American children with their Mukilteo peers.
