History Okanogan was used for thousands of years as a camping ground and fishing area by the Southern Okanogan Tribe, also known as the Sinkaietk or Uknaqinx, as well as by several other tribes of the mid-Columbia. Steelhead and salmon runs were plentiful on the Okanogan River. The Okanogan River was also well known to fur traders and other early non-Indian explorers in the early 1800s. In 1833. Farms, Orchards, and a Town Around 1900, the mining fever was cooling off and settlers began turning their eye to another kind of gold — agricultural bottomlands. People began to realize that with the addition of irrigation water, the Okanogan Valley could be rich orchard land and farmland. In 1905, the Okanogan Irrigation Project was approved by the U.S. Department of the Interior, making it the first U.S. Reclamation Service project in the state. Contracts were let in 1906. Pioneer entrepreneurs began platting future town sites to serve what they envisioned as a bustling agricultural valley. Location The Ranch is in the very peaceful County of Okanogan, only 6 miles from Tonasket. Follow the winding road past the Okanogan river up the hill past the beautiful Whitestone lake. You will start to see Spectacle lake before you turn onto Wannacut lake road. The custom-built home sits on a perch overlooking the vast valley floor and the surrounding mountains. The only sounds you will hear are the birds singing during the day and the crickets chirping at night. Minimal artificial light allows for some splendid star gazing as you sit on your patio feeling relaxed, taking it all in. There is a county airport in Tonasket 3,000 feet.
