The Wells House was a dormitory

During the early years of Wenatchee Valley (Junior) College, the Wells House served as many things, one being a girls dormitory. Eighteen to 20 girls lived on the second floor, ate in the college dining room and socialized and studied in the main floor living room. Three of us got together recently to reminisce about our time as We Ho Gis (Wells House Girls) for two wonderful years, from 1953-1955.

Dan Sollom | Apple Tree — take a bite

Playing golf in November can be dicey if you live in North Central Washington. Late fall brings cooler daytime highs, wind, rain and even snow and frozen turf. It’s a challenge to play daily if you’re sick and addicted like me. Luckily for us, we have golf options to the south that become more suitable for this time of year.

How two local youths inspired the Mayor's Maker Forum

A couple talented Wenatchee students played a significant role in inspiring City of Wenatchee officials to launch the Mayor's Maker Forum this Thursday at Wenatchee Valley College. Valley Academy 8th grader Sam Monson, who is passionate about tinkering with technology,  proposed that the community develop a "Maker Space,"  according to Allison Williams, the city's executive services director, Steve King, the community and economic development director and others. The idea was seized upon quickly by the city. Before that, the notion of "Maker Space" was not even on their radar, Williams ...

Jean Towers | A look at A.Z. Wells

Last month my fellow Wells House Committee member, Teri St. Jean, wrote a wonderful story about W. T. Clark, who built the Wells House, then called The Cobblestone Castle. I would like to tell you about A.Z. Wells, who bought the house from the Clarks in 1919.
