magic

Volunteers create Bavarian theme Leavenworth’s magic wouldn’t be possible without the hard work and dedication of an incredibly diverse group of people and organizations. In order to make sure that the magic never dies in our Bavarian Village, these people and organizations spend thousands of hours each year to make sure it all comes together. As always, it’s impossible to give all the credit where it’s due, but these select groups are truly the foundation of our village.

Projekt Bayern

It truly takes a cast of thousands to make Leavenworth come alive every year. Here are some of the many who are dedicated to make every visitor’s experience truly delightful.

Royal Bavarians A group of early supporters of the Washington State Autumn Leaf Festival started meeting to discuss the goodwill of the “Bavarian Village” and the need for official ambassadors. In the early ’70s this small group of Bavarian theme supporters formed “The Royal Bavarians” with Owen Watson as the first Kanzler (German for president). Other members were Wilfred Davy, Bill Garrecht, Lenard Smith, Dick Stroup and Lynn Watson. Chartered by the city of Leavenworth in 1974, “The Royal Bavarians” are the official hosting and greeting organization for the city of Leavenworth. The organization supports the Washington State Autumn Leaf Festival, assists the Royal Lady as needed, and escorts the float to all the parades held by the Northwest Festival Hosting Association members. They host out-of-town guests and visiting VIPs during the Autumn Leaf festival and also support the Leavenworth Chamber of Commerce in leading the Grand M a rc h d u r ing Maifest, participating in Christmas Lighting, and greeting Kanzler Linda Christianson g u e s t s a t and First Gentleman Juris other events Vagners. 4

such as concerts, bus group and train arrivals. They also sponsor donations to the Leavenworth Community Cupboard. Twice a year they clean debris on a 2-mile stretch of highway in the Tumwater Canyon under the Adopt-a-Highway program. In 2011, Linda Christianson is Kanzler accompanied by her husband First Gentleman Juris Vagners. Vice Kanzler is Sandy Owens-Carmody, Minister of Records is Nancy Watson, and Minister of Finance is Claire Burlingame. “The Royal Bavarians” is a Washington state registered non profit organization. It is a member of the Northwest Festival Hosting Group, an association of community festivals throughout the Pacific Northwest and British Columbia.

Autumn Leaf Festival Association The association is responsible for Leavenworth’s own “Granddaddy of Them All,” the Washington State Autumn Leaf Festival. Held in September the Autumn Leaf Festival is Leavenworth’s longest running festival, still strong after 47 years. The association and the Royal Lady of the Autumn Leaves, together with help from the Royal Bavarians accompany the Leavenworth float to all major festivals and parades across the Northwest. Through their efforts the Autumn Leaf Festival parade draws floats and groups from all over the Northwest to Leavenworth’s Autumn Leaf Festival Parade.

If you ever wondered who is behind most of the Bavarian tradition in Leavenworth, look no farther than Projekt Bayern. Formed in 1996, Projekt Bayern is now one of the mainstays of Leavenworth and all the town has to offer. Projekt Bayern’s contributions to the Bavarian Village are many and varied. The group helped form Musikkapelle Leavenworth—the town band, and also helped costume Edelweiss Tanz Gruppe— the town’s German dance group. They are responsible for erecting the Maibaum (May pole) used in various celebrations throughout the year. They also funded the paintings on the Festhalle and helped build the town bier wagen, the town fountain on Eighth Street and the sculpture at the Festhalle at Front and 10th streets. Perhaps the largest contribution Projekt Bayern is responsible for is Oktoberfest, the annual celebration of the harvest and beer. With Projekt Bayern’s help, Oktoberfest has grown from a lightly attended, one-weekend festival to a three-weekend event that attracts thousands. Projekt Bayern is also behind another of Leavenworth’s festivals, Christkindlmarkt (Christ Child market), which is held Thanksgiving weekend.

Bavarian Design Review Board Ever wonder how Leavenworth maintains its Bavarian character in its buildings and signs? Leavenworth’s Design Review Board assists designers, builders and businesses to promote Leavenworth’s Old World Bavarian theme through the review of new building plans, substantial remodels and signs in the business district. The board is comprised of five members who are appointed by the City Council and mayor and act as an official advisory board to the city. Members are carefully chosen because of their knowledge of Bavarian architecture and experience. They volunteer their time for the betterment of Leavenworth. For information about the board members and Leavenworth’s design and sign codes, visit www.cityofleavenworth.com/design.htm. Sonnenschein auf Leavenworth • 2011


H istory

Colorful history goes back to 1800s The story of Leavenworth’s first 100 years starts and ends with Icicle Ridge and the towering mountain range that shelters the town. The majestic landscape has remained the only constant. Its beauty and abundance drew in eras of eclectic characters who reinvented Leavenworth time and time again.

The Early Years, mid-1800s The first people to roam Icicle Valley were the P’squosa, or the Wenatchi, as the settlers called them. They survived by fishing, hunting, picking berries, digging camas roots and other native plants. The salmon runs brought thousands of American Indians from all around the inland Northwest to harvest these great fish all along the Wenatchee River and Icicle River. The gatherings lasted weeks and included ritual dancing, trade, stories and contests. Mining brought an influx of people to after gold was discovered in what is now known as the Blewett Pass area in 1860. Of the hundreds of mines “The Hummingbird” continued production until 1975. The mining camps housed miners of all nationalities including Irish, Scandinavian, Chinese, German and English. Those in the camps depended on a small settlement in the valley, present-day Leavenworth, for shipping, supplies and liquor. The settlement was named Icicle, from the American Indian word “nasikelt” or “narrow-bottom canyon.”

Railroad, lumber boom, 1890-1920s The first route across Stevens Pass was built by The Great Northern Railway Company (GNRC) in 1892. The townsite was across the river from Icicle and was named Leavenworth the same year rail construction began. Captain Charles Leavenworth, president of the Okanogan Investment Company, purchased the land in presentday downtown and laid streets parallel to the new tracks. The railroad was completed in the dead of winter 1893. It was the valley’s first connection to the west coast and everything east. Leavenworth became railroad central. Seven sets of tracks were laid downtown where Highway 2 is now. GNRC also built a roundhouse for turning engines where the present-day Enzian Inn is located. The riverfront at the present-day Enchantment Park was the staging point for the area’s second biggest industry, timber. LaFayette and Chauncery Lamb, brothers from Iowa, arrived in 1903 to build the state’s second largest sawmill. The LambDavis Lumber Company brought in a $2 million fortune after two years of business. At one point the company employed more than 1,000 men. Sonnenschein auf Leavenworth • 2011

Leavenworth’s streets were abuzz with saloons, brothels, a general store, a school and an opera house. The town was lawless until 1906 when an official city government and sheriff’s office were established. The area’s population exploded to eight times its original number, from 300 in 1900 to 2,500 in 1915, which is approximately the population in Leavenworth today. Between 1910 and 1920, the first hospital, library, cemetery, orchard, modern water system and irrigation district were created.

Industry leaves, depression sets in, 1920s-1960s In 1925 the GNRC announced its plans to relocate its headquarters to Wenatchee and move its tracks away from Tumwater Canyon’s dangerous avalanches through Chumstick Canyon instead. The pullout was a heavy blow to the town’s economy. The sawmill closed a year later. Most of the river-accessible logs had been harvested and shipping was difficult with the loss of the railroad. The sudden loss of Leavenworth’s two driving industries, in addition to the first and second world wars, caused a mass exodus. Those who were able to find work depended on the

U.S. Forest Service, schools, the hospital, small businesses or logging operations. Life remained slow for 30 years. Leavenworth area residents enjoyed lighting the Christmas tree in the City Park and also baseball leagues, town dances and church events. A world-famous ski hill shook up the quiet times. A group of Norwegian settlers built a toboggan run and a ski jump in the late ’20s. Skiing became the new buzz in town, bolstered by the Leavenworth Winter Sports Club established in 1929. Spectators in waves of 10,000 a weekend came to watch the international jumping competition, which several locals won. The events stopped when international ski jumping standards changed in the mid-1970s.

Project LIFE rescues town By the ’50s it was clear that outdoor recreation was not enough for the town to make a living. Businesses were failing. Leavenworth was dubbed a welfare town and jobs were hard to come by. A group of residents banded together to find a way to end the 30-year depression. They were determined not to let their Leavenworth die with the ages.

Logging was an important part of Leavenworth’s colorful history. Logs once floated down the Wenatchee River to the Lamb Davis Lumber Mill in Leavenworth. 5


H istory progress. Beginning with the Autumn Leaf Festival in 1964 the town learned to develop new events every year. Leavenworth will host 19 festivals this year, as well as summer theater, art shows and outdoor recreation events that keep visitors coming back year after year.

Leavenworth Time Capsule

Winter sports have been part of the Leavenworth scene for many years. In fact, the Leavenworth Winter Sports Club has been around for 80 years. The Leavenworth Ski Hill, at one time, played host to national ski jumping events.

They looked to the alpine mountain scenery for inspiration. New owners of the Squirrel Tree Restaurant at Coles Corner, introduced the alpine theme in 1960 and constructed their neighboring motel in a Swiss alpine style. Others also began to facilitate the change. To w n s f o l k b e g a n P r o j e c t L I F E (Leavenworth Improvement for Everyone) dedicated to create a community plan of action. In 1964 the Vesta Junior Women’s Club of Leavenworth won a

$10,000 national prize for improvements in Leavenworth. That and the savvy promotions of Leavenworth residents brought new attention and helped sustain the change. It was done without coercion and without government aid. On a summer evening in 1965 at the Tumwater Inn, the Project LIFE committees unanimously agreed to “go alpine” and officially commit to a Bavarian theme and by 1968, 14 buildings had been remodeled. Leavenworth will always be a work in

Leavenworth’s First Centennial Time Capsule was buried in Lions Club Park in downtown Leavenworth 6 feet south of the flagpole rockery and 6 feet down under a capstone with “Leavenworth’s Centennial Time Capsule 2006 -2106” inscribed on the grass-level marker. Its exact location is recorded by surveyor’s descriptions, GPS latitude and longitude numerals, and recorded in historical archives. Its opening date is to be Sept. 6, 2106. The contents were selected to reflect Leavenworth’s daily lifestyle and historic past 100 years before the capsule’s opening. Selected items for burial included a 2006 telephone book together with a cell phone and directions for use, a pound of fudge with guaranteed longevity, restaurant menus, local paintings and photographs of Leavenworth’s past and present provide a complete history of the fish hatcheries, plus several wine bottles from local wineries. Also included are personal biographies and personal items reflecting the style of living at this time. The 2,200-pound concrete vault is airtight and contains a collection of 44 items reflecting historical information about Leavenworth’s first 100 years. Care was taken to ensure time-decay prevention by transcribing current CD and DVD disks to archival disks that last 300 years. Care was taken to provide players with electrical connections and all paper donations are individually sealed in air tight archival envelopes to ensure time survival.

Train offers relaxing travel option Leavenworth is now even more accessible thanks to the Amtrak Empire Builder route which runs from Seattle to Chicago each day. The Icicle Station opened Sept. 25, 2009, eight years after Leavenworth Mayor Rob Eaton began his quest to make the train stop a reality. Icicle Station has proven to be a popular alternative for travelers. During those snowy winter months, the train provides an excellent way to visit Leavenworth, with direct shuttle service available to Stevens Pass Ski Resort. In the spring and summer months, the train 6

provides another way to take in some of the many recreational opportunities available, such as river rafting and rock climbing. The Empire Builder’s route through the Cascades provides one of the most beautiful views of the picturesque Cascade mountains. The opening of Icicle Station marked a significant milestone in the history of Leavenworth. It had been nearly 50 years since trains had stopped here, with the exception of the special Christmas Lighting trains that annually would bring thousands of visitors for that event. The opening of Icicle Station actually

coincided with opening day for the town’s oldest tradition, the Autumn Leaf Festival. The first train was welcomed with a party on the platform, with guests such as State Sen. Linda Evans-Parlette, an important supporter of the project, who delivered the keynote address. One shelter on the platform at Icicle Station is now complete. A second phase of construction is planned this year, including a second shelter and an indoor station with ticket sales. Tickets are approximately $30 from Seattle’s King Street Station.

Some of the finest wines found here Who could imagine even a dozen years ago that Washington would become the next wine-touring region to rival Napa Valley? With serene vineyards stretching over rolling hills, it’s no wonder the area is one of the fastest-growing wine regions in the world.

Silvara Winery

The state’s wine industry is roaring. In 1981, the state had 19 wineries, a number that grew to 163 by 2000. Last year, the Washington Wine Commission reported 650 wineries and this year, more than 700 are in operation. Those wineries produce 12 million cases of wine, with an estimated retail value of nearly $500 million. The experts say the wine industry provides a total economic impact to the state of $3 billion. In Chelan County and the Upper Valley, the growth as been proportional. From the handful of wineries 10 years ago, now more than 40 wineries, tasting rooms and vineyards dot the county’s landscape. The Lake Chelan Appellation became official in 2009, and is home to 17 wineries, many of which have tasting rooms in other areas of the state. Leavenworth alone houses at least 12 wine tasting rooms, with more in the outlying areas of Plain, Cashmere and Peshastin. What makes Chelan County wines unique when compared to French, Chilean, California and wines from Walla Walla is the

industry’s newness when compared to its competitors. Valley wine makers experiment with both white and red varieties with equal curiosity and passion. It’s still too early to say which kinds of wines will establish a reputation in our region. Each variety continues to garner awards and high marks at wine competitions all over the world. Historically, this region has always grown grapes. But with the explosive growth in the industry, wine tastings are scheduled year-round and many wineries are open seven days a week. The most popular times to tour the vineyards are in early summer when the buds begin to break and in late summer when the grapes are at their fullest. But you don’t want to miss the wine stomping during the summer crush period or the wine-and-chocolate winter tastings. Of course, wineries aren’t the only attraction. Before vineyards this area was considered the Apple Capital of the world, and fruit orchards still dominate the agricultural landscape. Fruit stands can be found all along Highway 2 from Monitor to Lake Wenatchee, and Highway 97 from Blewett Pass north. Tree fruit including apples, pears, nectarines, peaches, apricots, grapes and cherries are available in these picturesque stands, often tended to by their owners from early in the morning until dusk. You can also find locally produced jellies, jams and other locally produced food products like green lizard pickles. Unique arts and crafts made by loSonnenschein auf Leavenworth • 2011

cal artists can also be found in the quaint local fruit stands. The Wenatchee valley is still a major world player in the production of apples and pears. Exports compete with places like New Zealand and Chile for an ever-

expanding market now reaching places like the People’s Republic of China and Japan, where, for example, our Red Delicious is considered a delicacy. But the apple that put the area on the map is no longer the dominant variety grown here. Local growers have diversified their crops to produce every variety including a few that were created by some of he more innovative local growers. Another unique and popular fruit product, Aplets and Cotlets, is made right here in the valley. This world famous fruit candy is made in a broad variety of styles and flavors and tours of the factory in Cashmere are open to the public. Before the Bavarian Village theme, before summer theater, river rafting and Oktoberfest, farmers were turning the Upper Wenatchee River Valley into a rich agricultrual region. With irrigation, those innovative farmers turned a once-arid land into one of the pre-

Tips for taking home your loot If you’re planning to buy in quantity, bring containers or boxes with plenty of packing material so that delicate cargo will make it home safely. Burlap bags sprayed with water are great for transporting corn. This keeps the sugars in corn from turning to starch. If you have a cooler, bring it! Keeping produce cool keeps it fresh. If fresh produce is what you’re after, shop for it last. You may also want to inquire about shipping. Some local growers will ship their produce year ‘round.

A g Tourism mier fruit-growing areas in the country. As a result of their hard work and dedication, each spring the hills are filled with the sweet aroma of fruit blossoms, Today’s farmers, like the farmers before them, are finding innovative ways to make the land productive and to maximize the financial return from their efforts. Farmers reach out to tourists and visitors by setting up roadside fruit stands, gathering at farmers markets, or offering tours of their orchards and farms. But agri-tourism is more than just fruit

stands and orchard tours. It includes wine tasting festivals, car shows, hay rides, petting zoos and tours of an old fruit packing line. There is no need to leave the kids behind while you explore the local wineries. There are ample opportunities for the entire family to explore the world of agriculture in the Wenatchee river valley. So, if the kids ever asked you where an egg comes from, or you would like to taste a truly fresh pear, you might want to stop by one of the local fruit stands, check out one of the

self-guided driving maps available at visitor centers or see the schedule of events at visitwashingtonfarms.com or call 509-433-1054. Finally, you don’t even need to open your wallet to enjoy the benefits of the valley’s many orchards. This area is rich in stunning views of its plantations, from the canyons surrounding Leavenworth and Cashmere to the heights of Palisades State Park. From there, you can stand in awe of the vistas of acres and acres of trees and vineyards loaded with delicious fruits.

Find Karl

Kids, young and old, we need your help to find Karl, the oldest and biggest nutcracker at the Leavenworth Nutcracker Museum. Karl is kind of lost, and is wandering around the pages of the Sonnenschein. We need your help to find him before the other nutcrackers get worried. Can you find Karl? He is on at least 11 pages, including this one. Karl’s image is used with permission of the Leavenworth Nutcracker Museum.
