The year is 1904, you’re living in the remote town of Eatonville, and the first train has come to town. You’d celebrate too!

Pat Van Eaton says that in this picture we’re looking East on Center Street East. The well (the little gazebo looking building on the right) would be sitting in front of what today is the Eatonville Outdoor shop, on the corner of Mashell Ave. and Center Street.

  1. I hear that train a’comin’, it’s comin’ round the bend. it’s gonna haul some lumber that will help Eatonville to mend. I hear the whisle blowin’, it’s gettin’ ready to stop. The little town of Eatonville, will soon be up on top !! (sing to Johnny Cash’s song)
