Description

1 map: col., 23 x 34 cm.<br>Plat map from the Whitman County city of Palouse. Scale: 400'=1"<br>The word Palouse stems from the name of native tribes in the area that were perhaps known as the Palus, Palost, Pallah, or Palusha people. When French trappers came to the region they called the area "Le Peleuse", or grassland country. The term now is used not only for the region, but a town and river as well. The town of Palouse lies on the south fork of the Palouse River. Modoc Smith and W.P. Breeding laid claims there in 1875, and the town (also known at that time as Palouse City) held a post office just two years later. By the 1890s, Palouse was a major trade area. The town also supported a healthy sawmill business and farming economy. The Northern Pacific Railroad arrived in 1888 and the town incorporated that same year.
