Description

1 map: col., 9 x 12 cm.<br>Plat map from the Whitman County town of Pampa. T 15, N.R. 39E, Scale 400'=1".<br> The Columbia and Palouse Railroad Company's line ran through the Pampa siding in 1883. The town grew large enough for a post office just one year later, but it only continued in operation until 1912. The post office, railroad station and general store all lay on Front Street, with the school on South and 3rd. By the time of this plat map, 1910, the Columbia and Palouse Railroad was replaced by(or perhaps incorporated into) the larger Oregon Railway and Navigation Company.<br> Many hypotheses have been given regarding the origin of the Pampa name. Some suggest that it refers to the pampas-like grass of the region. Others guess that someone--perhaps David S. Bowman, a southerner who arrived in 1883--named the town in honor of Pampa, Texas or Pampa, Tennessee.
