Any other information you’d like to add:
Population: approx 10,000; very close to Bellingham and it’s amenities. This town has a very small town feel.
Town was started by Dutch immigrants and still has that flair and encourages tourists to visit with this theme. They have an annual Dutch festival, windmills and tulips in front yards and local merchants dress in costume, including clogs! This is a very religious orientated town with tons of different Christian based denominations.
