In the early 1950s, the need for a town to support the local agriculture business was evident, and the Bureau of Land Management agreed to 339acre for this purpose. The winning (and only) bid was that of the local pharmacist, Charlie Brown. Brown invested his own money into the venture, and with help from a University of Washington instructor, the town structure was planned. The plan included streets, utilities, etc.Make George central to your United States travel plans using our United States journey maker site.
