History & History Related Items

Chewelah history:

Chewelah began as one of the mining boom towns of the late 1800's. The Old Dominion Mine was opened nearby when gold was discovered. This brought many gold-seekers into the area to "strike it rich." In 1883, silver and lead strikes were found at Embry Camp, but these didn't last too long before they petered out. By 1910, there were almost 1,500 residents in Chewelah. Chewelah was unique compared to the other mining boom towns because its ore continued to be produced until the mid-1900's. The mines have since ceased to produce their ore, but Chewelah continues to survive with a nostalgic look at his boomtown history.
The founding of Chewelah: 1879
The incorporation date of Chewelah: 1903
