The Kittitas Wau Wau


July 4, 1880

(This is one of the oldest, if not the oldest, Kittitas County newspaper issue still
in existance.)
Published by Austin A. BELL at the Stockade Grocery & Bakery. This very short issue mentions the following persons: "Ellensburg now has two hotels, two general stores, one grocer, one beer hall, three saloons,
one butcher, one blacksmith, one washhouse, two wheelwrights, two carpenters, one shoemaker,
one barber, and one nursery. Outside town are four sawmills, one store, one brickyard,
one brewery, and several blacksmiths." --Submitted by Lynn Blazek for the Kittitas Kinfolk, vol. 16, no. 1.
