To the pioneer mothers and fathers
of this valley, we, the Associated Students
of Peshastin High School, dedicate this
issue of the WLomoa'.
It has been only through the constant
and willing efforts of these pioneers that
our neighborhood and also the whole valley
have become what they are today--one of the
richest agricultural districts in the WestQ
Therefore we feel that it is fitting that
we shot our gratitude in this small Way for
the long years spent in developing the resour
ses and opportunities in our state so that
this rich heritage may be left to us, the
future citizens of the State of Washington.

HISTORY OF THE WENATCHEE IALLEY
Because the exploration and settlement of the Wenatchee
Valley preceded northward up the valley from Wenatchee, the history
of the valley begins with Wenatchee and then considers Cashmere,
Dryden, Peshastin, and Leavenworth.
The name, 'Wenatchce,n say students of Indian lefe, moans a
meeting place of the tribes, but others say the nam means water
fall or place of boiling water, referring to the vapcr nh ch
arises from the falls in the Wenatchee River. Cnc nf the earliest
episodes in the history of Wenatchee was the place? mining done
by whites and Chinese, a ditch being dug early in the 1870's +o get
water for mining purposes,? In 1891, the first substantial step
towards irrigation was made. The city began its existence fn Hill-
er Street. Water was hauled in a large wooden tank from the Col-
umbia River. The town grew steadilyg at the time of the building
of the Great Northern Railway, the town sito was changed and then
occurred the livoliost times in the history oi the city. In 1900
all the children of The Wenatchee district were taught by four
Cashmere had its first permanent settler in Mr. A. B. Brender
who settled in 1881. A Father Rospari, Catholic Missionary, came
to educate the Indians in 1865. Mission was tho name rf Cashmere'
up to 19055 then, because the name was confused with another town,
Judge Chase made the selection, naming the town after the beautiful
vale in India and Mt. Kashmir. A railroad and depot was built in
l900g Cashmere was incorporated in 1905, telephones installed in
1900, Paved walks in 1913, electric lights in 1914 and paved streets
When Andrew Johnson settled at Dryden in 1886, it was nothing
more than a dry low land inhabited by Indians. Tho tow advance-
ments which brought more people to the valley were tho railroad put
throught in 1895 and the survey of land for homcsteading in 1895.
The few settlers there, realizing that no prosperous farming could
bo done until some moans of'gotting water was arranged, constructed
the Peshastin Ditch in 1896, tho'Icic1o Ditch in 1912, and High Land
Ditch ln 1916. Land was cleared, fruit trees set in and when tho.
orchards began to boar, it was necessary to have warehouses to store
the fruit. 1907 saw tho erection of a side track, depot and warehouse
When the builders of the railroad reached what is new Pesh-
astin in the summer of 1892, the town suddenly sprang up to take
care of the workers located temporarily there, a town boasting two '
grocery stores, one dry goods store, five salcons, four restaurants,
two bakeries, two hotels, two feed stores, a blacksmith shop and
a sawmill. Then, when the railroad workers moved northward, the
e pty buildings remained. A little school house stood where is new
Mac larland place. A few leg houses were scattered here and there
