It's a pretty quiet area, besides the main highway that runs through the town. I attended elementary and middle school in Maltby and had great experiences at both. There are a lot of industries and businesses hidden in Maltby's background, and a couple of neat shops and cafes to visit. There are also a few gas stations and mini-marts for convenience. It's nestled between Woodinville and Monroe, which is a great location. It's a very woodsy area with a lot of trees, which I love. There is a lot of wildlife, too! People look out for one another in Maltby, and it's a place where friends can be made.
Lived at Echo Acres in the late 60s & early 70s. As kids we would walk to Lost lake and Echo lake in the summer to fish and swim. It was a very enchanting time .Then ,Maltby had a old school house with a bell on top and I remember I wanted to ring that bell so bad but never did. I think that building is still there.. we eventually transferred to Monroe Central Elementary which no longer holds students . It’s over by Buck Island.Echo Acres at the time was gravel road the they finally built the store across the highway.. as kids we would hang out there. That’s also where we caught the school bus. I remember the summers being hot and it was always so quiet there. We would walk down to the Logging road at the bottom of the hill and follow it for miles. It was GOOD TIMES then. My dad bought 2 half acre lots undeveloped for $1500 each And we cleared them to put a double wide trailer on it. I miss those days. Wish I could relive it I still remember our phone # LO8-6297.
The Bothell community is like no other. It is a very family oriented based town with lots of housing developments and great schools. The city is now getting a revamped downtown, so we will now have a movie theater and a pool. Best of all however is the ability for small business to start up here. When Bothell suffered through a devastating fire on main street and destroyed/damaged businesses and historic buildings; the community came together. The city of Bothell threw a bloc party to help raise money after the fire. It was so cool to see neighbors, teachers, emergency personnel all together having a good time!
