Roslyn is a quaint and charming former logging and coal mining town just minutes from Suncadia. Roslyn was named after the Roslyn, NY, home of the coal mine operator's sweetheart. Whether it is a visit to the landmark tavern “The Brick” (also the oldest running bar in Washington State), or its Sunday open air Farmer’s Market, this eclectic town is a must visit.
The town was featured in the 1979 movie The Runner Stumbles, a fact-based story about a priest's (Dick Van Dyke) love for a nun he's accused of murdering. In 1990, the sleepy little town exploded into view when featured as the fictional "Cicely, Alaska" in the popular television series, Northern Exposure.
