"The historic town of Perrinville is located in both the city limits of Edmonds and Lynnwood. During the mid 1900s the area was logged and used as farm land and residential home sites.

Perrinville was founded by Jennie Gertrude "Gertie" Perrin in 1938, who paid 10 cents to register the place name at the courthouse in Everett. A gas station/garage and grocery store were soon constructed thereafter.

The downtown area developed a turn-of-the-century theme and an eclectic mix of shops, including an antique store that Perrin owned. The buildings still retain the architectural style of the period.

In 1999, a joint effort began between the cities of Edmonds and Lynnwood to create a skate park near the north entrance of Lynndale Park along Olympic View Drive in response to a need expressed by local skaters and community leaders. The completed park now includes a 5,000-square-foot concrete skating surface."
