Welcome to the City of Sultan 

Whether you are moving to our city, or just visiting and want information, we want you to feel welcome.

Established in the late 1880′s and officially incorporated in 1905, our community has a rich and colorful heritage. Logging, mining and agriculture provided the economic and cultural foundation in those early years. Today, Sultan is a quiet but growing community with a population fast approaching 5,000.


Our city is on the brink of a great transformation. Already several hundred new residential homes, commercial and retail projects currently are in the development process. We recognize that growth is inevitable, and we are actively taking the steps necessary to protect the wonderful way of life that our residents have treasured for over one hundred years.
