North Yakima - 1888

        From R. L. Polk & Co.'s 1888 Puget Sound Directory

           Transcribed & Edited by Mike & Julie Sweeney

A flourishing incorporated city on the C division of N.P.R.R. on the 
Yakima River, in Yakima county, of which it is the county seat.

The town has only been about three years in existence, but has 
already become an important center and at its present rate of 
increase will soon become one of the largest cities in Washington 

It is already the metropolis of an extensive region extending west 
to the Cascade mountains and east to the Columbia river, embracing a 
number of fertile valleys especially adapted for the raising of 
wheat, hops, and fruit.

The city now contains several churches, a good graded school, two 
banks, a flour mill, a planing mill, a new opera house and a number 
of general stores.  The drug, hardware, grocery and other lines of 
business are will represented.

Three newspapers are published,- the Republic, the Signal and the 
Washington Farmer.  

Stages to Fort Simcoe and into the Big Bend country.  Population, 
about 1,200.  Exp., N. P. Te'., W. U. and Mail, daily.  George W. 
Carey, postmaster.
