Teri St. Jean | Wells House: A gift of college memories

In 1949, Mr. and Mrs. A.Z. Wells donated their beautiful three-story, five-bedroom home, surrounded by five acres of manicured lawns and orchards to the Wenatchee School District for the newly-formed Wenatchee Junior College. Students had formally been housed in the Wenatchee High School. That building was located on the corner of King and Idaho streets, which now borders the newly formed Historic District of Wenatchee.

Chris Rader | Eagle Transfer has mobilized Wenatchee for 112 years

Founded in 1903 by Albert N. “Bert” Courtway, the Eagle Livery and Transfer Company was Wenatchee’s first horse-based transportation business. It offered many services: stabling and feeding horses, selling feed and firewood, taxiing, and renting out horses and wagons. Two-horse “buses” from Eagle Transfer would meet all incoming steamboats and trains to deliver passengers to their hotels or residences. Families hired the company to move furniture and household goods, including pianos. Young men rented Eagle carriages to take their sweethearts on Sunday drives.

When Neil Armstrong guided the Apollo 11 lunar module to the moon on July 20, 1969, he said “The Eagle has landed.” As he moved to the surface, he said, “One step for man and one giant leap for mankind.” But did mankind’s giant leap open the door for solving world problems? Astronaut Edgar Mitchell believed so during his 1971 Apollo 14 flight but progress has been slow since.
