A Brief History Of Wenatchee, WA
Wenatchee, WA is sitting on a piece of land that has been inhabited for at least the last 10,000 years. It was discovered by an explorer for the Northwest Company and fur trader named David Thompson in 1811. However, the area was not settled by non-native people until the early 1870s when a few men that were out of a job began the Wenatchee Trading Post.
In the early 1900s more buildings were erected including a church and public library. The city ran its own irrigation out of the Columbia River, eventually building a bridge to bring fresh water to the opposite banks. This was the first bridge built over the Columbia River.
