Nestled in the valley where the White River flows into the Puyallup River, the City of Sumner is combining the best of the past with a visionary future.
Settled in 1853 by pioneers, the city was built on agriculture, especially daffodils, rhubarb, hops, berries, vegetables and turf grasses. In fact, Sumner is still known as the Rhubarb Pie Capital of the World!
Sumner has retained its small town charm even though it is now a city of 9,000 residents. The historic Downtown Sumner is home to a variety of shops and businesses and hosts many community events including the Daffodil Parade, Wine Walks and Music Off Main.
The East Main Street business district is a newer, vibrant business community with restaurants, shopping and services.
The industrial area in Sumner hosts many warehousing and manufacturing facilities, such as Costco, REI, Amazon and Green Mountain Coffee.
