Come on in to Sumner, Washington, the "Rhubarb Pie Capital of the
World." Settled in 1853 after a wagon train daringly crossed the
Cascade Mountains through Naches Pass, Sumner quickly grew to
become an established town. Find out how Sumner's name was
literally drawn out of a hat. Learn about George Ryan's unique
method for getting the railroad to stop here. Take a tour down Main
Street, and watch how it changed--or didn't--through the decades.
See Ryan House when it actually was a farmhouse and the Old Cannery
when it was canning fruit. Join in celebrations over the years,
from the Daffodil Parade to football championships. Meet
schoolchildren, including Clara McCarty Wilt, who became the first
graduate of the University of Washington. Follow the work at local
industries, from the lumberyards to the fields, where daffodils,
berries, and of course, rhubarb were grown.
