Mrs OH and I were visiting Ellensburg, WA, for the weekend. I grew up in the country on a cattle ranch 7 miles outside of what was then a small college town with roots in cattle ranching and logging. We decided to take a walk through the Central Washington University campus on Sunday afternoon to kill some time before going to dinner at a childhood friend's home. This college was originally the Washington State Normal School founded in 1891. Classes were held in the Washington Public School building until the normal school's first building, Barge Hall, was opened in 1893. This school has probably quadrupled in size since I left Ellensburg in the late 1960s. My Grandmother got her teacher's certificate from the normal school in 1914 and taught in one room country schools for 3 years before marrying my Grandfather, a local cattle rancher. In those days a woman could no longer teach school after getting married. My family goes back 5 generations in this valley to my great great grandfather and his son who were early pioneers here in the 1870s. He started the local newspaper and his son, my great grandfather, started a cattle ranch.
