I said “No … Where did you hear that?” She told me that a friend from St. Jude’s Parish in Redmond had told her.

Kris Bassett | Clark's pebble mansion

One of Wenatchee’s most historic and early grand mansions is what is known today as “Wells House.” But before A. Z. and Imogene Wells owned the house, which later became the first home to the Wenatchee Junior College, it was home to a man who is regarded as the “father of the Wenatchee Valley.” It was William Timothy Clark, who brought water to the valley through the Highline Irrigation Canal, which in turn resulted in Wenatchee becoming the “Apple Capital of the World.”
