There is one landmark in Stanwood that is readily seen from many directions. It is the Hamilton Stack.
In 1927, a smokestack known as the "Hamilton Stack" was constructed to elevate the smoke from burning refuse so it wouldn't blow into Stanwood. The mill ceased operations in the early 1930's and was later purchased by the Hamilton family around 1945. They still own a lumber company in town however the mill itself finally closed down in 1960.
Today the stack is still a major landmark and is seasonally decorated with lights by volunteers from the Lion's Club and fire department.
