Trafton, Washington


Trafton is a small unincorporated community located in Snohomish County, Washington.[1] It is located near the city of Arlington, and although many things in the area are named Trafton (such as the historic Trafton School and Trafton Cemetery), most residents consider themselves residents of Arlington.

The community derives its name from Trafalgar, Indiana.[2]
