**THROWBACK THURSDAY**
During the early months of 1916, Kittitas County experienced one of the heaviest snowfalls in its history. Now that snow season is upon us, can you even imagine plowing through twenty-eight feet of snow!! Yikes!!

Join in the fun as a volunteer during the Holiday Markets!! Volunteer shifts are available to help set up on Friday nights before opening hours on Saturday. On Saturday, we have two volunteer options, as a Market Host or Santa's Helper!

THROWBACK THURSDAY***
The winter of 1916 may have paralyzed automobiles, but not the horses and pedestrians from braving the freezing weather!

THROWBACK THURSDAY****
The ground was covered with the first snowfall on November 11, 1915 and bare ground was not seen again until the first of April 1916. The train transportation came to a standstill. I'd imagine shoveling all this snow was quite a workout!!

We are hiring!

Before I-90 opened in the late 1960's our 1st Street was also Highway 10. Here within the city limits, the street offered many hotels and restaurants to travelers and visitors.
There is quite a difference on this quiet street scene in 1944 vs. the busy crowded 1st street from BOO-ELUM ...2022!

**THROWBACK THURSDAY**
You can see the Cle Elum Ridge as you look north down Pennsylvania across the Northern Pacific Railroad tracks in this 1916 photo. The Central Hotel is on the left and the Northwestern Improvement Company on the right. Also noted on the west side of the street, a ...dentist office, drug store, and the Sunset Cafรฉ!!
