History of the White River Valley.

The White River Valley looks to be recently discovered at first glance. But European explorers started visiting here shortly after the Lewis and Clark Expedition, and Natives have lived in this area for thousands of years.

Your host began discovering this mostly-hidden-history shortly after purchasing acreage over 25 years ago. As it turned out, the land was the first land homesteaded, shortly after the US Congress first approved the Homestead Act in the mid 1800s. The local stories formed the basis of an historical novel written by your host (On The White, available on Amazon).

We will start with a brief review of the geologic history of the area, including the last ice age and the Missoula Floods. Prehistory, to the extent it is known, will be presented. Most of the time will be spent on the arrival of pioneers, their settlement, and their interactions with Natives.

Easily a full hour of information is available, and plenty of time is available for questions, answers and discussion.

Depending on weather and other factors, the talk will occur outside and inside the 125 year-old cabin.

The history of this area is shockingly rich and long. We will spend our time in informal conversation, with plenty of time for discussions and questions. We will cover geologic, climactic, pre-history, and more recent history. Special requests encouraged.

Dave has been wandering the hills of Washington State, and this area in particular, for 50 years. While history was not of much interest in his youth, the in-your-face nature of history in the wilds of Washington drew him in, particularly as he learned the super-local history of his land and community.

Locals were thrilled at his interest and started giving him stories, photos, newspaper clippings and books. Setting out to write a history of the White River Valley, Dave instead wrote a novel heavily based on what he has learned of the true history.

His recent interests are with the prehistory of the area. He is gathering information and has commenced writing another book covering this part of the local story. This will be his fourth book.

Donde estarás

The White River Valley is ripe with history. Some of it is obvious, like our 125 year-old log cabin, or Eunice Henry's roadside grave, showing she died 109 years ago. As weather, conditions, and interests allow, we will meet inside the log cabin, around our acreage, and perhaps in some of the relevant surrounding areas.
