Big Lake

East of Mount Vernon in southwestern Skagit County, this lake was once shown on territorial survey maps as Delacy’s Lake. W. W. Delacy was an official of the Territory of Washington around the time of the Indian War of 1855–56. Territorial Surveyor General James Tilton chose to name a number of lakes in Western Washington for his military associates. Most of these names did not become permanent.
