An Issei couple operated a large dairy farm in a town formerly known as Days, Washington. The 1,300 acre farm also included valuable timber that grew on the property. With the advent of World War II, the couple was forced to sell their farm for a fraction of its worth. This is the original farmhouse that housed the couple and nine of their eleven children (two were raised primarily in Japan). Recently, the Snohomish County Council approved funds to make this area into a trailhead, and the home may be used as a park-ranger station. Days, Washington no longer exists. This site is currently near the town of Arlington in Snohomish County.
