GO | History of the Palouse Palouse Wheat Field

Mesmerizing fields of wheat and barley, pea and lentil, greet visitors throughout the Palouse, but there’s gold well beyond the region’s distinctive natural scenery. Tucked away in north central Idaho and southeast Washington, the Palouse is a geologic wonder unlike any other area. Home to two universities and one classical college, this area offers urban sophistication tucked between turn-back-the-clock towns. Rich in culture and arts, spirited college athletics, and abundant in outdoor recreational opportunities this area captivates travelers. They soon understand why this is one of the Northwest’s most photographed regions. Enjoy!

History of the Palouse The Palouse is a region in the northwestern U.S. that encompasses north central Idaho and southeastern Washington, and is known for the majestic landscapes of rolling farmland and wilderness areas. There is

no clear origin of the name “Palouse,” but one theory is that French-Canadian fur traders converted the name of the Palus tribe to the more familiar French word pelouse, which means “land with short and thick grass.” Since that time, the area has become renowned for growing wheat and legumes, and has held the title of the

Pea and Lentil Capital of the World. This beautiful area is home to several different communities, with Pullman, Washington and Moscow, Idaho being the main hub communities. In 1889, the State of

Idaho named Moscow as the home of the state’s land grant institution, the University of Idaho. Just across the state line, Pullman, Washington was named in 1890 to be the home of the land grant institution of Washington State University.

Serving the Community for more than 40 Years!

These vibrant communities are home to friendly people, world class Universities, and unparalleled natural beauty. Residents enjoy “big city” access to the cultural and recreational events provided by two university cities, while experiencing the charm and safety of small towns with a mild climate, clean air, highly rated schools, and a low crime rate. This area also enjoys four distinct seasons throughout the year, allowing for a variety of outdoor recreational opportunities that are within a day’s trip of Moscow or Pullman; including mountain biking, telemark and crosscountry skiing, snowmobiling, hunting, fishing, golfing, garnet digging and white water rafting.

Located at the junction of three streams (South Fork of the Palouse River, Missouri Flat Creek and Dry Creek) in what is now the downtown area, Pullman (first known as “Three Forks”) has a rich history going back to the 1870s. First on the site was Bolin Farr from Missouri who settled on present day Park Street and later built a house there. Second was Daniel McKenzie who came in 1877 and built a small home approximately on the present day location of the Manor Lodge on Paradise Street. In 1881 Farr and McKenzie platted the town site. The town’s application for a post office called “South Palouse” was rejected by the Post Office Department. The next application with the town name of Pullman was accepted. One theory is that the adopted name came from George Pullman, the king of the great railroad sleeping car. When informed of the town’s action, the railroad magnate reportedly donated $50 to start a city library. Soon after, McKenzie invited Mark True to come from Moscow and establish a hotel here. The result was the Palace Hotel located on the southeast corner of Paradise and Kamiaken Streets. The town’s first artesian well was discovered while drilling a well for the hotel. These wells soon attracted newcomers to the area. Railroads

came from the west and the north and the town grew and incorporated in 1888. After Washington gained statehood in 1888, there was fierce competition among the towns east of the Cascades to be the location of the land grant college. The award went to Pullman, and the town was forever changed. The Washington State College was established on the northeast part of Pullman in 1889 opening with 21 students, and the town entered a new era. That small school is now Washington State University with branches in other parts of the state.

the area was first named “Hog Heaven” which was later changed to “Palouse Valley.” In 1877, Samuel Neff filed for a postal permit under the name of Moscow because the area reminded him of his hometown of Moscow, Pennsylvania. In 1875, the city’s first store was opened on what is now Main Street. Moscow grew with the arrival of the railroad in 1885. The town became incorporated in 1887 and was chosen as the site for a land-grant institution, the University of Idaho, in 1889. Idaho

Tips Alison More than one successful landscape picture of the same location on the Palouse can sometimes be made by simply changing your camera’s lens and/ or perspective. A wide angle lens (28 mm or less) set to a small aperture on a camera that is positioned a few feet from foreground details overlooking a broad Palouse field can create a dramatic, traditional landscape image. Alternatively, a long lens of 100 mm or more used at a greater distance from the subtle curves of rolling hills and field textures simplifies and softens the scene and can make for more painterly, abstract images.

from Yosemite Valley or the Grand Tetons from the Snake River Overlook. Instead, the rolling fields of the Palouse and endless miles of gravel roads provide each photographer with a unique opportunity to follow his or her own vision. I have been photographing around the Palouse for more than three years and seldom shoot from the same location twice. Steptoe Butte offers a reliable location to get above the crest of the hills, but I generally prefer to combine a bit of exploration with shooting. A detailed map will help you find the lesser traveled roads, or go without and explore. Some of my most enjoyable photography has been while lost. Keep in mind that the hills surrounding you are private land. If you plan to trek out across the fields, make a point to introduce yourself to the land owner get their permission. Late spring and early summer

are certainly the best times of the year for photographing green and then golden fields of wheat. May and early June often have less stable weather, resulting is a bit more of a gamble for photographers on a tight schedule, but also hold greater potential for dramatic light. Winter in the Palouse is often dull and gray, but a clear sunrise over fields freshly dusted with snow can be a real prize to a photographer lucky enough to be out at the right time.

Basics

• Always bring extra film and your tripod • Scout your locations ahead of time, when possible. Head out when weather and light conditions are at their best or

most interesting. • Consider investing in a topographic map of the area, or stop by the Whitman County Courthouse for a county map showing the back roads in the region. Caution – many of these roads are primitive. Believe all warning signs you encounter. • For best light, shoot ½ hour before sunrise/ sunset and up to 1 hour after sunrise/sunset. Interesting lighting conditions also occur when storms brew over the hills.

Colton, Washington The Colton story began in 1879 when L. J. Wolford, Roy Woodworth and Dr. Cole, being dissatisfied with the proprietor of Uniontown, decided to found a town of their own. They acquired the property from Gregory Koshier and the town was platted that year. The name came from the first three letters of Dr. Cole’s last name and the last three letters of Mr. Wolford’s son, Clinton. That same year the Steptoe Canyon road was built. The main road at that time was from Pullman through Johnson which made the Steptoe Canyon road the best route to the river grain terminals through Colton insuring early success of local businesses. The present highway (SR195) was completed in the early ‘30s. In

Juliaetta, Idaho In 1878 Rupert Schupfer homesteaded the land where Juliaetta is located. For a short time the town was known as Schupfer or Schupferville. When the post office was established in 1882, the first postmaster, Charles Snyder, renamed the town after his two daughters, Julia and Etta. In the 1890s a tramway was installed and warehouses erected for the grain raised on the ridges above Juliaetta. It was powered by a steam engine and consisted of a track on which sled-like cars operated. Eventually seven wagon roads led to Juliaetta, with lumber, grain, and fruit as the area's principal products. In the late 1890s and early 1900s, Juliaetta was quite a promising town with a flour mill, sawmill,

Potlatch, Idaho In 1903 the Potlatch Lumber Company, organized by the Weyerhauser interests, purchased the mill and timber lands of the Palouse River Lumber Company. Instead of building a major mill at Palouse, as local people expected, the company built a new mill, a company town, and a railroad. In 1905 construction

Nothing was privately owned until 1952 when the company sold the town, giving residents first option to buy their houses. It donated the library, fire hall and truck, church lots, and other public facilities to the town. The mill operated until 1981 and was dismantled in 1983. The spectacular scenery surrounding Potlatch consists of deep pine forests and grassy meadows, clear rivers and babbling mountain streams, providing year-round recreational opportunities. Potlatch provides excellent accommodations for hunting, fishing, camping, and other recreational activities. Contact the City of Potlatch at (208) 875-0708 for more information.

vicinity came to be known as Warren Meadows. In 1899 an English Lord, Hugh Bovill, visited the area and in 1901 purchased the land. He soon returned with his wife, Lady Charlotte, and two daughters, Gwendolyn and Dorothy. In a few years the Bovills had built a hotel for the accommodation of sportsmen wishing to enjoy the area's superb hunting and fishing. In 1907 he established a store to serve the homesteaders and was appointed postmaster. The extensive logging of the white pine by the Potlatch Lumber Company and the rowdy logging camps and loggers ruined Bovill's paradise. He and his family left the area in 1911. While lumber is still the primary industry, Bovill is nestled in a beautiful mountain

Genesee, Idaho Originally Genesee was a village that grew up about a mile east of the present town beginning in 1872. When in 1888 the Spokane & Palouse Railway was extended to Genesee, the owner of the townsite, Jacob Rosenstein, asked what was considered an exorbitant price for rightof-way and grounds. As a consequence the railway built its terminus a mile west of the village, and the original town was forced to move to the present location. After the village moved, Genesee experienced a period of rapid growth. In the heart of some of the most productive farming land in the county, it became

Genesee, ID

a trade and supply center for a fairly large area. By the time the railroad tracks reached Lewiston in 1898, Genesee had been the end of the line for ten years and was an important shipping point to which cattle and hogs were driven from as far away as Cottonwood and Grangeville. Hay and grain warehouses sprang up alongside the tracks, and business boomed on the main street. In the early 1900s fruit was an important product, and apples were shipped out by the carload. Visitors to Genesee can enjoy the historic buildings downtown, take a country drive to admire the beautiful rolling hills of wheat, barley, garbanzo beans, peas and lentils, or shop at the local antique store. Another great adventure is to visit the National Historic Site, White Springs Ranch. Take a trip back in time and see the circa 1876 log cabin and the 1884-1904 farm home. Call (208) 416-1006 for more information. Genesee Community Day, the first Saturday of June, draws visitors from all over. A great day for families to enjoy the car show, basketball tournament, quilt show, or warm up your running shoes for the Cow Creek Run. For more information visit geneseecivicassoc.org.
