RuralHeritage

The Grandview Library Collection documents the founding and development of the city of Grandview, located in Washington State’s fertile Yakima Valley. Local tradition tells us that on a bright Indian summer morning in 1905, two men on horseback, Elza Dean and F.L. Pitman, pulled their mounts to a halt halfway between then new towns of Sunnyside and Prosser. They saw Snipes Mountain rising in the foreground, and the snow-capped peaks of Mt. Adams and Mt. Rainier were outlined against the sky. “It’s a grand view!” Read more about our community in the Grandview Library Collection at Washington Rural Heritage a joint project of our library and the Washington State Library, Office of the Secretary of State.
