History Of Washington

In 1774 - 1775 the first Europeans came to the region. In 1805, the Lewis and Clark expedition came to the region and the Washington Territory is created in 1853. Washington was named in honor of George Washington and was granted statehood in 1889 as the 42nd State to be admitted to the Union. The state's coastal location and excellent harbors have contributed to its role as a leader in trade with Alaska, Canada and other countries. The Mount St. Helens erupted in 1980 and was the deadliest and most economically destructive volcanic event in U.S. history. Washington is the leading producer of apples and is the home of the coffee chain Starbucks.
