Brief History of Goldendale Washington

Goldendale, established by John J. Golden in 1872, was Klickitat County's first town. On November 5, 1878, Klickitat County residents voted to make Goldendale their county seat. The following year the town incorporated under Washington Territorial laws and on April 15, 1902, re-incorporated under Washington state laws. The Goldendale Sentinel, which in the 1910s ran with a banner summing up Klickitat County's charms as "Where The Rain And Sunshine Meet," was founded in 1879 and remains the County's main newspaper. In 1973, Goldendale built a public observatory in Goldendale Observatory State Park, which has become a major center for viewing the night skies.
