The Great Northern Railway arrives in Western Washington in 1893 and set off a logging boom that transformed the region. One of the largest mills in the Puget Sound region was built in Monroe just off of Wagner Lake. In spite of multiple fires that would force owners to start from scratch each time, the site continued to be a working mill until the mid-30's. The only remaining building, the Wagner Mill Power House and Machine Shop, is listed on the Washington Heritage Register. It can also be your next home. Asking $1.18M, the historic building has already been partially-converted into a residence (heavy on the partially). Situated on a 556k sf lot and right up against the banks of Wagner Lake, the property also includes an equestrian barn with loft, a 1,360 sf shop/guest suite and four-hole pitch & putt golf course. Make sure you bring your interior designer and architect with you but the potential here is, well, historic.
