Farms, Orchards, and a Town
However, by around 1900, the mining fever was cooling off and settlers began turning their eye to another kind of gold - agricultural bottomlands. People began to realize that, with the addition of irrigation water, the Okanogan Valley could be rich orchard land and farmland. In 1905, the Okanogan Irrigation Project was approved by the U.S. Department of the Interior, making it the first U.S. Reclamation Service project in the state. Contracts were let in 1906. Pioneer entrepreneurs began platting future town sites to serve what they envisioned as a bustling agricultural valley.
The ranch is located in a peaceful country setting and only 6 miles from Tonasket. Follow winding road past the Okanogan river up the hill past the beautiful Whitestone lake you will just start to see Spectacle lake before you turn on to Wannacut lake road. the custom built home sits on a perch over looking the vast valley floor and the surrounding mountains the only sounds you will hear are the birds singing during the day and the crickets chirping at night.
