Okanogan, Fort WA

David Stuart of the Pacific Fur Company established a colony and named it "Fort Okanogan" in 1811. In 1821, the fort was purchased by the Hudson Bay Company. Fort Okanogan Interpretive Center overlooks the site of the original fort. The word "Okanogan" is derived from "Okinakane," the name the local Indians used for themselves.
