Brief History of Skyline

The area referred to as "Skyline" was once the site of Fidalgo Island's largest sawmill. The Northern Pacific Railroad and Henry Havekost, a pioneer industrialist, owned the tract of land bordering Washington Park and Burrows Inlet. The railroad constructed a depot and the Burrows Bay Hotel during the 1890s, thinking this would be the Northwest's terminus to the Orient. In 1960, the property was purchased by Skyline on Burrows Bay, Inc. with the intent of developing a west side community of homes and businesses. The mill was demolished and a few homes and a restaurant built, but the capital was insufficient. Harry Davidson, an Everett developer, stepped in with a master plan for a community of hillside, waterfront, and wooded homes. His plan also included recreational areas, a marina, and a clubhouse for social get-togethers. In 1968, the project was opened to the public.
