central,washington,color,home,page | Where to Go | Roslyn
Roslyn started as a coal mining settlement in the late 1800s. Today, it is a well-preserved historic town with plenty of artists, small businesses and community volunteers.

Summer is busy with parades, picnics and parties. The Roslyn Farmers Market runs June to September on Sundays.

Roslyn might look familiar -- it was the town of Cicely, Alaska, in the 1990s television show "Northern Exposure." It also was featured in the 1979 film "The Runner Stumbles" with Dick Van Dyke. More recently, it was featured in an production of "The Man in the High Castle," based on a 1962 novel by Philip K. Dick.

The town is bordered by a 300-acre, city-owned forest. Miles of nonmotorized trails wind through the mixed forest of pines and firs and connect with the nearby Coal Mines Trail, a five-mile railroad easement between Cle Elum and Ronald. The tall trees in the forest hide slag heaps and remnants of mining infrastructure.

Other destinations include the Brick Saloon, which is the oldest continuously operating bar in the state, the Roslyn Theatre, and the NWI Building.
