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 teachers. 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 in 1919. 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
