Fobes Hill is a neighborhood located southwest of the City of Snohomish. Its borders include the Snohomish River, Bickford Avenue and Highway 9. Considered an unincorporated area of the city, its location is perfect for folks looking for good sized lots within close proximity to shopping and the charm of the antique capital of the Northwest.
This area is home to many hidden, independent cultivators and farms. Beekeepers, blueberry fields, and pumpkin patches are all part of the landscape of this beautiful community. It’s not uncommon to see your neighbor riding their horse down the road, or see a herd of Lamas look your way when you go for a walk. Beauty is everywhere on Fobes Hill.
Susan Custer, Client Care Specialist for Pickett Street, bought their home in this neighborhood and fell in love with the friendly deer that come to visit and its close proximity to the charming downtown shopping area with restaurants for even the most critical palate. Snohomish has a small town atmosphere with good food, great wine and an abundance of character.
Snohomish High School, est 1849, was remodeled and upgraded during 2008 and holds over 1200 students. Sometimes during the Fall, Susan and her family can hear the faint cheers of the Snohomish High School Panthers during football season! Rich in spirit and community, you will witness the entire town wearing red and black (the Panther’s team colors) during major events and parades, which is a strong tradition in this town. Centennial Middle School provides our students with academic and sports excellence. Riverview Elementary is one of the first schools in Snohomish, and rebuilt in 2012. Rated A-B these are public schools that will provide tools for our students to excel.
