Fun Facts For The State of Washington
Granted statehood in 1889, Washington was named in honor of George Washington; it is the only U.S. state named after a president. The state’s coastal location and excellent harbors have contributed to its role as a leader in trade with Alaska, Canada and countries of the Pacific Rim. The majestic Mount Rainier soars above Seattle and is the highest peak in the continental United States. Another Washington landmark, Mount St. Helens erupted in 1980, the deadliest and most economically destructive volcanic event in U.S. history. The Evergreen State is the nation’s leader producer of apples and is the home of the coffee chain Starbucks. Famous Washingtonians include musician Jimi Hendrix, entertainer Bing Crosby and computer pioneer Bill Gates.
Washington's natural resources are greatly responsible for the state's growth. The Columbia River, which forms part of the state's southern border, is North America's greatest source of hydroelectric power. Grand Coulee Dam, the world's largest concrete dam and the greatest single source of waterpower in the country, is located on the river. In fact, Washington gets 80 percent of its power from water. This has attracted industry to the state.
Other features of Washington's diverse landscape include forests and snow-capped mountain ranges. The Cascade Range divides the state into two main areas. The western section has a mild climate and plentiful rainfall, making it a fertile farming region. Dairy farming is an important activity in that part of the state. The eastern section is drier, but irrigation has created agricultural wealth for the area. Wheat, vegetables, and fruits, especially apples, are grown in the eastern section. Red Delicious Apples and Granny Smith Apples are Washington specialties. Livestock is also raised in the region.
