A.Z. Wells and Emogene Slack were married on December 9,1896 and moved to Wenatchee in 1902. In 1919 they purchased W.T. Clark’s “Cobblestone Castle” on Fifth Street. One can imagine them adding to their early furnishings over the next 31 years of their living in the stately home. When the college acquired “Wells House” in 1950, upon A.Z.’s death, Mrs. Wells left several furniture items in the house for the college’s use. As the campus developed with more buildings, the college began moving out of the house and by 1970 ...

BOYS BASKETBALL (3-7, 6-12) Tuesday, Moses Lake (7-3, 12-6) home.* Did you know?  The first time these two met that the opponent was not called Moses Lake?  That would have been March 6, 1937 in the district tourney here in town and the team from Moses Lake was called Neppel.  The next year the community incorporated as Moses Lake with 302 citizens.  By the way, WHS won that game 33-11 for the district championship and went on to place sixth at state the next week. * The last century ended with ...
