Washington Of Interest

Washington flagThe Spanish explorer, Bruno Heceta, visited the area in 1775 and claimed it for his country. The Lewis and Clark expedition of 1804-1806 stimulated interest, and in 1818 an agreement to a ten-year period of joint occupancy of the Oregon country between the U.S. and Britain was made. Washington became a territory in 1853 and a state in 1889.

Washington's chief commodity is lumber. White and ponderosa pine, spruce, cedar, larch, and hemlock are found on the state's numerous hills and mountains. Cattle and livestock products are important items, as well as halibut and salmon. Agricultural crops are apples, pears, red raspberries, spearmint, cherries, aprictots, asparagus, grapes, potatoes, hops, and lentils.

Washington has over 1,000 dams, so its abundance of electrical power enables efficient aluminum production. The dams' other functions are flood control, irrigation, and water storage.

The state of Washington is the only state to be named after a United States president and is also home to the world's wealthiest person.
