Excerpt: Lynden, Washington - The windmill of Dutch Village Inn on the corner of Front and 9th Streets. Lynden was begun in 1871 and established in 1874 by Holden and Phoebe Judson near the site of the Nooksack Indian village Squahalish (Nooksack: Sqwehalich). It was named by Phoebe Judson after the riverside town in Hohenlinden, a poem by Thomas Campbell, stating: According to her book, A Pioneers Search for an Ideal Home, she changed the spelling of Linden to be more visually appealing.

The town was officially incorporated on March 16, 1891. The town lies in a broad valley along the winding path of the Nooksack River, which empties into nearby Bellingham Bay. The surrounding area is filled with dairy, raspberry, strawberry, and blueberry farms. The region saw significant Dutch immigration in the early and mid 1900s, spurring the growth of dairies.

Today, Lynden pays homage to its Dutch heritage through locations such as Front Street, which has been made-over with a Dutch theme, complete with its own windmill. Along that street, youll find a Dutch bakery, Dutch restaurants and numerous antiques stores. Local supermarkets contain Dutch food sections, and Dutch is still spoken by some of the towns residents. The Raspberry Festival is held the third weekend in July every year.

The festival includes the Curt Maberry 3-on-3 basketball tournament, the Razz
