History & History Related Items

Pullman history:

Originally known as Three Forks in 1877 because several creeks and the Palouse River joined together here. In 1881, three settlers, Daniel McKenzie, Bolin Farr and Orville Steward applied for a postal permit with the name, "Pullman." Some say it was chosen from George Pullman, who created the famous Pullman railroad cars. The Pullman area had artesian wells which brought many new people to the area. There was a push in 1890 by several businessmen to bring a university to Pullman. Through the state's land grant program for education, Washington State College opened in 1892 with only 21 students. Now there are over 17,000 students enrolled at the Pullman campus alone.
