Pateros is a city in Okanogan County, Washington, United States. The population was 643 at the 2000 census and increased 3.7% to 667 in the 2010 census.HistoryPateros was originally established as Ive's Landing in around 1886 by Lee Ives. Ives began farming the area near the confluence of the Methow and Columbia Rivers, with around 50 teepees of Native Americans and 20 Chinese miners also inhabiting the area. The first post office was built in 1895.In 1900, Charles Nosler acquired most of the townsite. He renamed the town to Pateros, after a town in the Philippines he previously visited. In 1903, the city consisted of four commercial establishments and nine residences and the town was sold to J.C. Steiner. Steiner vigorously promoted the town, making Pateros the principal rail shipping point between Oroville and Wenatchee. Pateros was officially incorporated on May 1, 1913.Wells Dam was constructed on the Columbia River several miles downstream from Pateros in 1967. Wells Dam is one of the many hydroelectric dams present on the upper Columbia River including Grand Coulee Dam, Chief Joseph Dam, Rocky Reach Dam, Rock Island Dam, Wanapum Dam, and Priest Rapids Dam. The reservoir created by the Wells Dam is named Lake Pateros and flooded much of the original city.
