  • lumber and shipping towns came up around Puget Sound. The small towns of Olympia, Seattle and Tacoma grew because of the logging company. Many docks and ports grew larger and larger. Later, this opened up opportunities for other kinds of shipping and trading outside of Washington.
  • Growth of Agriculture
  • The Pacific Ocean and Washington’s deep rivers were filled with fish. Native Americans and pioneers harvested these fish, which were then dried, sold and shipped to other cities.The fishing industry quickly changed when Robert Hume built a plant that used cans and high heatto preserve fish.
  • Growth of Agriculture
  • in the Puget Sound Lowlands and the Cascade Mountains, miners discovered coal. Coal was burned to heat homes and provide the power that ran machines in factories. Some of the early miners were Chinese, from England and Wales, also a large group of African-Americans came to dig coal. Factory owners even hired children to sort the pieces of coal.
  • In the Walla Walla Valley farmers grew hops and wheat. Native Americans and white men worked in the fields together. This opened the door for Chinese and Hispanic males to also join this work force.
  • Washington apples had also become an important crop by the 1900's. Irrigation projects made it possible to run successful orchards in Yakima, Wenatchee and Okanogan Valleys.
