History CAPITOL THEATRE Originally built in 1920, The Capitol Theatre has been serving the community for nearly a century. Just after being purchased by the City of Yakima in 1975, much of the Capitol burned to the ground in a tragic fire, leaving nothing but a smoldering facade. The newly formed nonprofit, Capitol Theatre Committee, led fundraising efforts to restore the Theatre to its original glory. It reopened in 1978 (just 733 days after the fire).

CARBONNEAU CASTLE Born Belinda Mulrooney in Ireland, Carbonneau grew up in Pennsylvania. At an early age, she left home, living in such places as New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Juneau, Alaska. By the late 1800s, she’d moved to the Klondike to make her fortune from the miners working the Alaskan gold rush. 6

Orchards

With more than forty commercial crops grown here, the Yakima Valley has the largest variety of fresh grown produce in the Pacific Northwest, and our farmers and growers are the reason this is one of the most important agricultural regions in the nation. Not to mention that our irrigated, high-desert climate piled on top of volcanic soil creates the perfect recipe for growing farm fresh produce. If you are looking for the freshest varieties of farm fresh fruits and vegetables, look no further than one of the many seasonal Farmers Markets scattered throughout the valley. Nearly every community has at least one outdoor Farmers Market from spring until fall, and there even some indoor markets that operate year-round.
