La Conner is a town in Skagit County, Washington. The center of town is the historic waterfront village and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In 1869 John Conner bought the trading post and renamed it using the initials of his wife Louise Anne.
Today, La Conner is a mix of people who work and live here, including the Swinomish Tribal Community, Shelter Bay residents from across the Channel, fishermen, farmers, artists, and carpenters – a diverse mix of cultures and educational backgrounds. If you need a place to relax and browse through interesting shops and art galleries, if you want to watch the waterfront or enjoy fine restaurants, inns and bed & breakfasts, then come to La Conner.
You can also enjoy natural beauty and wildlife such as bird watching. La Conner is wintering grounds for swans and Canadian geese. The fertile farmlands continue to produce food and seed crops and, of course, our annual Tulip festival is celebrated around the world.
