HistoryKnown as Haipwil to the Indigenous people, Palmer Lake is named for James Palmer, who had a cattle ranch at the north end of the lake around 1875. Palmer Lake lay near the town of Loomis, Washington. Loomis, founded in the 1870s, was an area populated early on by cattlemen. One outfit, Phelps and Wadleigh, herded cattle over from the west side near Seattle, through the Snoqualmie Pass and into the Sinlahekin Valley and Loomis. However, when law opened the North Half of the Colville Indian Reservation in 1886, Loomis experienced a gold rush lasting until the silver slump of 1893. Okanoganites enjoyed Palmer Lake for its fishing and scenic beauty, traveling there for vacation getaways in the summer heat. The lake is within a deep valley that was at least in part modified by continental glaciation. The valley was carved at least in part by glacial ice that extended well south of the lake. As the glacial ice retreated during the late stages of the last glacial period the lower end of the present Smilkameen was blocked by the Okanogan ice lobe and water flow was diverted southward though the deep valley to other outlet locations – such as the valley east of Loomis.
