Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Puget Sound Power & Light Company’s history began with Massachusetts-based Stone & Webster Engineering Consulting Corporation’s acquisition of streetcar and power company holdings in Seattle and the Puget Sound region. In 1900, Stone & Webster’s newly created Seattle Electric Company consolidated property and rights of small privately-owned transportation and utility businesses including Madison Street Cable Railway, Union Trunk Line, and Third Street & Suburban Railway. Stone & Webster acquired West End & North End Railway and Seattle Railway in 1901, and Seattle Central Railway in 1902. With the formation of Seattle City Light in 1904, Stone & Webster became a major provider of electricity and street lighting to Seattle. Its achievements continued with the 1908 formation of Pacific Coast Power Company (a subsidiary of Seattle Electric Company), which established control over the land and operations of the Tacoma Power Company, including pending construction of a hydro-electric plant at White River. In the same year, acquisition of Seattle Tacoma Power Company provided access to property and assets of Charles Hinckley Baker – including power plants at Snoqualmie Falls and electricity distribution rights in Seattle and Tacoma.

In 1902, incorporation of the Whatcom County Railway & Light Company marked the start of Puget Power’s domination of public transportation and power systems in the City of Bellingham. Whatcom County Railway & Light acquired the former interests of the Whatcom-Fairhaven Gas and Northern Railway & Improvement Companies. These companies themselves comprised earlier consolidations of local rail and utility services: Fairhaven Street Railway Company, Lake Whatcom Electric Street Railway Company, Fairhaven Electric Light, Power & Motor Company, Fairhaven & New Whatcom Railway Company, Bellingham Bay Electric Street Railway, and Bellingham Bay Gas Company. In 1906, Whatcom County Railway & Light Company expanded control over distribution of gas, electricity and lighting in Bellingham through acquisition of the utility holdings of Columbia Improvement Society (previously owned by Bellingham Bay Improvement Company), and a forty-year contract to supply power in the City.

In 1901, Seattle Electric Company assumed responsibility for financing and construction of the Seattle-Tacoma Interurban, forming the subsidiary Puget Sound Electric Railway to control and operate both interurban and street railway interests in Seattle. The final stages of interurban construction occurred in 1910-1912 with completion of the Seattle-Everett Interurban Burlington line and construction of the lines between Mount Vernon and Sedro-Woolley by Bellingham-Skagit Railway Company. In January 1912, the newly incorporated Puget Sound Traction, Light & Power Company merged Bellingham-Skagit Railway and Seattle-Everett Interurban as Pacific Northwest Traction Company, responsible for the operation of several Puget Sound interurban railway lines. Whatcom County Railway & Light reorganized as the Bellingham Division of Puget Sound Traction, Light & Power Company. In addition to their passenger lines, Puget Power provided freight services to regional businesses and industries such as the Renton coal-mines owned by Puget Sound Electric Railway.

As automobiles became more prevalent during the 1920s, the company – reincorporated in 1919 as Puget Sound Power & Light Company – had to respond to the gradual demise of the railroad passenger industry. Subsidiary company Pacific Northwest Traction offered bus services between Seattle and Bellingham from 1925 onwards, while the Seattle Interurban Motor Company provided services to Vancouver, British Columbia as early as 1921. The various interurban rail and bus services ultimately integrated as North Coast Lines in 1927, as use of the railway interurban gradually declined and were disbanded between 1928 and 1939. “Puget Power” increasingly focused its interests on the distribution of power in the Puget Sound region, divesting its railway interests, and stepping-up acquisition of Washington utility companies. Despite involvement in some major development projects (such as the construction of transmission lines across the Cascades range in 1922), support for municipal ownership forced Stone & Webster’s subsidiaries to compete for increasingly limited property and distribution rights. Puget Sound Power & Light faced increasing competition and legal challenges from Washington State Public Utility Districts, losing power distribution rights in Seattle and Tacoma by 1930. These conflicts continued through the 1960s, despite its 1943 restructuring as a Washington-based corporation. In 1997, Puget Sound Power & Light merged with the Seattle gas distributor, Washington Energy Company to form Puget Sound Energy.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

The Puget Sound Power & Light Company Records document the emergence and early activities of one of the leading private power and transportation operations in Washington State. Records reflect the incorporation, property and operations of around fifty Stone & Webster, or “Puget Power” companies involved in the provision of utility and transit services in Western Washington and in particular the Puget Sound region. Materials span the period 1888-1990, with the bulk of records dated 1888-1932. The collection is divided into fifty-three series, each reflecting activities of specific predecessors or subsidiaries of Puget Sound Power & Light. Company records include administrative and corporate records, financial records, operational records and some property and legal records.

The collection contains a small volume of material documenting the existence and operations of early Seattle-based street railway systems including those of First Avenue Electric Railway Company, Front Street Cable Railway Company, and Madison Street Cable Railway Company. Record and minute books document the gradual acquisition of their interests and property by Stone & Webster – initially through Seattle Traction and Seattle-Everett Traction Companies, and by Seattle Electric Company in 1900. The collection also contains a small number of administrative and financial records relating to early street railway and power companies in the City of Bellingham, including Fairhaven & New Whatcom Railway, Lake Whatcom Electric Railway, Bellingham Bay Gas and Whatcom Fairhaven Gas Companies. Whatcom County Railway and Light Company records contain significant information about street railway and power service in Bellingham after 1902, with the bulk of material dated 1903-1915.

Records for the Seattle-Tacoma Interurban Railway, Bellingham-Skagit Railway Company and Pacific Northwest Traction document the construction and operation of the interurban railway systems in the Puget Sound region, and in particular, the line connecting Bellingham with Sedro-Woolley and Mt. Vernon. Stone and Webster’s interests and operations in the Everett area are reflected in the records of Everett Railway Light and Water Company and Puget Sound International Railway Company. Materials generated by Pacific Traction Company and Tacoma Railway and Power Company pertain to “Puget Power’s” interests and activities in Tacoma, while operations of the Seattle-Tacoma interurban railway are documented in the records of the Puget Sound Electric Railway Company. Puget Sound Electric Railway’s coal-mine holdings are documented in the financial and operational records of the Renton Cooperative Coal Company and Renton Coal Company. Puget Sound Power and Light’s increasing acceptance and use of automobile transportation is reflected in the records of the Puget Sound Bus Company and Seattle Tacoma Union Stage Lines. The collection also includes aerial photographs generated by Puget Sound Power & Light Company and its real estate department between 1986 and 1990.

Series 52:   Whatcom County Railway & Light Company , 1903-1938 ,   (bulk 1903-1915) Return to Top

With the incorporation of the Whatcom County Railway & Light Company in 1902, Stone and Webster consolidated control of Bellingham’s railway and utility companies. Administrative record books document early proposals for construction of the interurban linking Bellingham, Mt Vernon and Sedro-Woolley, and incorporation of Puget Sound Traction, Light and Power Company (of which Whatcom County Railway and Light became the Bellingham Division in 1912). Financial and operating reports contain detailed breakdowns of expenses and revenues for the Company’s railway and utility holdings in Bellingham. Operating reports contain monthly statistics relating to the distribution of water, gas, and electric power in the city, including manufacturing data for the various local power supply stations. Other financial records contained in this series include construction and expense accounts, voucher books and petty cash ledgers.
