The climate of Yakima Valley is mild and dry, having the characteristics of both maritime and continental climates modified by the Cascade and Rocky Mountains.. The Yakima Valley lies within the rain shadow of the Cascades, so the total amount of precipitation is relatively small.. The summers are dry and hot, and winters are cool with light snowfall.. The maritime influence is strongest in the winter when the prevailing westerlies are stronger and steadier.. The modifying influence of the Pacific Ocean is less evident in summer.. Summer afternoons are hot yet, due to the dry air there is a rapid fall in temperatures after sunset.. Elevation 1,068 feet above sea level.. Sunshine 300 days.. Rain 7-10 inches..

In the grandfather days the Yakamas were a sovereign nation.. Smoke from army camps lifted above the valleys of the Kittitas and Yakima.. From the snowy heights of the Cascade Mountains to the flashing waters of the Enche-wana, the "Big River" which we call the Columbia, everything was theirs.. The animals, berry patches, root ground, the salmon--all belonged to them.. With tribes and bands allied by blood and speech, they controlled a vast area of what is now Central Washington.. Even today, there is but vague distinction between the elements that combined to form it.. In the process of joining together, identities of the smaller groups have long since disappeared.. All the descendants on the Yakima Reservation represent the components of this once powerful Indian Nation.. Other tribes are represented too; Nez Perce, Paloos, Umatilla and Puget Sound.. The Yakamas themselves originated from several groups that occupied the Yakima Valley from the headwaters of the Yakima River, in the Cascades, to the stream's junction  ...   buildings of the Mission in their surroundings of pastoral serenity on the banks of the Ahtanum give little indication of the turbulent life that was their past.. (This article based on material contained in "The History of the Yakima Valley" by Professor W.. D.. Lyman.. ).. Yakima Indian War Markers located south of Union Gap, just beyond the overpass, it commemorates the finale of the Yakima Indian War of 1855 at the Battle of Two Buttes.. The DAR erected one monument in 1917 and the Yakima Indian Nation erected another in 1918.. The City That Moved.. History records note the first white men to view the Yakima Valley were members of the Lewis and Clark Expedition of 1805.. During that period this vast area, lying at the foot of towering Mt.. Rainier and its neighbors in the Cascade Range, served as hunting, fishing and agricultural land for the Yakama Indian Tribe.. The early day stories of the Lewis and Clark Expedition enticed trappers, traders and mineral seekers to the area throughout the first half of the 19th century.. As early as 1847, a Catholic mission was established in the Ahtanum area a few miles southwest of the present site of the city of Yakima.. A dozen years later, in the late 1850's and early 1860's, a permanent party of settlers began to arrive.. Some came from the Columbia River while others moved from Lewis and Clark headquarters near Walla Walla.. Military units arrived in the area in 1856 to quell Indian hostilities, and an army garrison was established at Fort Simcoe, 38 miles southwest of Yakima.. This historic fort, abandoned and neglected many years ago, has been restored to allow the public to see it in its original state.. During this settling down period, many Indian skirmishes were recorded, but in a comparatively short time, permanent and honored treaties were signed with the Yakama Nation, and in 1865 Yakima County was officially established.. A census in 1870 accounted for 432 pioneers in the county.. These hardy transplanted easterners and mid-westerners were people of vision and quickly realized the tremendous potential of the rich volcanic soil covering the Yakima Valley floor.. Although rainfall was not great, the Cascade watershed, with its heavy snows, provided an abundance of moisture.. By 1880, nearly 3,000 people were reported in the county.. With agriculture becoming firmly established, the railroads naturally followed.. In 1884, Northern Pacific extended its iron horse service to the valley.. Some of the townspeople of the growing community of Yakima City refused to make certain concessions asked by the railroad.. Northern Pacific then routed its track 4 miles north of the original Yakima City and named its terminal point, North Yakima.. The railroad then offered to move any of the Yakima City buildings to its newly established community, and one of the strangest and most colorful periods in Yakima's history was the actual movement of some 50 to 60 buildings from "Old Yakima" to "North Yakima" to surround the railroad terminal.. The courthouse, banks, general store, blacksmith shops, saloons and some homes were moved on log rollers over the 4 mile trail.. Some reported that business never ceased as the buildings were strung out along the route.. On January 27th, 1886, North Yakima was incorporated and was named the county seat.. It was not until 1918 that the prefix "north" was dropped from the name.. At that time, the original Yakima City, four miles to the south, and commonly referred to then as "Old Town" by some and "Union Gap" by others, officially adopted the latter as its name.. Old timers in the area still refer to Union Gap as "Old Town.. ".. On September 27, 1889 a franchise was given to A.. G.. McIntyre of Helena, Montana, to lay water mains, place fire plugs and hydrants, and sell water to the city and its inhabitants.. Charges for water were based on the size of the house served.. A four room home paid $1.. 00 per month, over four rooms $1.. 20, while use of one bathtub was an additional 33 cents.. For the first time on September 4, 1890, electric lights were turned on.. On June 11, 1891 the electric light and water works companies consolidated under the name of Yakima Water, Light and Power Company.. In 1910 the properties of the Yakima Water and Light system were sold to Mr.. A.. Welch of Portland who operated the Northwestern Corporation.. Subsequently the corporation was taken over by a predecessor of the Pacific Power Light Company and in 1913 the water and power system were segregated.. The very earliest utility, however, was the telephone system which was named The Sunset Telephone Company.. Operation started on December 15, 1889 organized by Mr.. John Lawrence who came to Yakima for that purpose.. The company would give services to forty different subscribers between the hours 8:00 a.. m.. and 9:00 p.. Later the Sunset Telephone Company was taken over by the Pacific States Telephone and Telegraph Company.. The organization for the first street car system was started in 1907 and was first known as the Yakima Inter-Valley Traction Company.. In 1908 it was reorganized and named the Yakima Valley Transportation Company.. In 1909 it was sold to the North Coast Railroad Company because of the effect of the depression in 1907.. At the turn of the century, nearly 15,000 residents were counted in the area, and the growth continued rapidly as man-made irrigation systems transformed the vast acreage into prosperous farms.. Those seeking crop diversification visualized fruit trees on part of the field crop and pasture lands.. The success of this venture has established Yakima as one of the most important fruit producing and diversified farm areas in the world..

Local Music  ...   In 1926 pioneer aviators Charlie and Allister McAllister opened their flight school in Yakima.. This historic flight school operated for 73 years to become the oldest continuously operating flight school in the Northwest.. Charlie's death at the age of 95 marked the transformation of the flight school into the McAllister Museum of Aviation.. From Charlie's connection to Orville Wright, who signed his first flying license, to Bonnie Dunbar and the space shuttle, the short history of aviation continues to have many ties in the Central Washington area.. Yakima was the place that the first woman performed a demonstration flight in a Curtis Pusher in 1913, just ten years after Orville Wright flew in Kittyhawk..

Structures in the district are characterized by decorative brick work and detail typical of turn-of-the-century architecture.. Construction of the trolley line in 1907 provided a crucial link for the community to the railroad depot, and added vitality to the downtown.. To accommodate trolley and railroad lines, the streets were surfaced with brick pavers by 1908.. Over the early years, North Front Street had a variety of small business and shops.. Sidewalks lined with trees were part of the first street pattern in Yakima.. The Northern Pacific Railroad maintained in attractive parkway of lawns, trees and flowerbeds adjacent to the depot.. Curving sidewalks, a fountain and gazebo were located in the site of the current depot.. In 1909, the existing depot was constructed and the parkway paved over with brick.. The original herringbone and traditional cobblestone patterns are visible in some locations.. Light to basements was provided in some of the original buildings via glass tiles set in the sidewalks..
