When Coal Was King

Welcome to the City of Roslyn! We hope that this site will provide you with some general information about visiting, playing, working, and living in our wonderful City!

Roslyn is located 80 miles east of Seattle near Interstate 90 in sunny central Washington. Incorporated in 1886, the coal-mining town of Roslyn played an important role in Washington State History. The extensive coal fields in the area fueled the Northern Pacific Railroad’s trains during construction and early operation of a direct rail line through the Cascade Mountains.

Men from coal mining regions in the United States, Europe and elsewhere came to work in the mines. English, Italian and Slavic immigrants were among the early settlers and a significant proportion of the town’s early residents were foreign born. In 1888, responding to a strike, the Northern Pacific Coal Company recruited more than 300 African-American miners from Virginia, North Carolina and Kentucky and brought them, with their families, to work in the mines. At one time, 24 ethnic groups and nationalities were living in Roslyn. Today, many of the original families continue to make Roslyn their home.
