Chris Rader | Wenatchee became electrified through Squilchuck

With Thomas Edison’s invention of the incandescent light bulb in 1879, and the first transmission of electricity over a 20-mile line from Niagara Falls Buffalo in 1896, the world had a bright future. Electric power became available in most cities and towns across the U.S. within the next decade (though many rural residents had to wait till the 1930s).

Chris Rader | Art exhibits highlight museum’s local flavor

Visitors to the Wenatchee Valley Museum and Cultural Center have probably admired “The Saga of Wenatchee,” a large mural on the south wall of the lobby. The mural was painted in 1939 by the young Tacoma artist Peggy Strong, who had won $2,600 in prize money from the U.S. Treasury Department in a competition for murals in public buildings.
