Parkland, WA Tidbits

Great Briton and the US were competing over the Pacific Northwest until 1846, when Lewis and Clark reached the Pacific Ocean. Of particular controversy was the region north of the Columbia River. It was believed that the region north of the Columbia River would go to the British, with substantially American settlers around Hudson's Bay Company's (HBC) outpost in Vancouver and Oregon City.

Settlers from both Brittan and the United States were being encouraged to move into the region. Through Fort Nisqually, the HBC made promises to potential settlers in Canada from the Red River region Canada to encourage their emigration to the Puget Sound area.

At the 49th parallel, the two countries settled their differences. However, there were still some differences about the San Juan Islands. The Oregon Territory was established in 1848. The Puget Sound area was established north of the Columbia the Puget Sound, and was known as Lewis County, Oregon Territory.

Fort Nisqually spent a considerable amount of effort in an attempt to defend its boundaries from American settlers. The conversion of these settlers into agriculture from the fur trade gave rise to the development of several locations of farm around south Pierce County.
From 1846, the Hudson's Bay Company defended strongly their holdings in this region stating something to the effect that they weren't a country, but rather a business. They wanted $2 million. Up until 1867, Pierce County and the Oregon then the Washington Territories argued with them in court until a settlement was finically reached. The HBC was finally paid $750,000 for the land in 1869. The white settlers were able to be granted their rights to a donation claim of land after remaining there for that had remained those 23 years.

They raise crops, such as barley and oats, along with pigs, horses, sheep, and cattle on those farms. It was recognized that the seed that had arrived Oregon City, was also comprised of acorns, which is where the Garry Oak trees, which are only found in Pierce County, were born. Up until 1863, when the Pendleton Woolen was established, the sheep were sheared and the wool was sent to back to England.

While there was competition that encouraged American settlers to buy in Steilacoom from American stores, the new settlers were frequently supplied by the HBC.

The relationship that the British had with the indigenous tribes further complicated the controversy between the British and the US. The British hired many of the local Indians to work on their farms. The American didn't have the same relationship with the indigenous tribes. The first white settlers arrived from a new northern branch of the Oregon Trail, known as the Naches trail in 1853. A monument called the Brookdale Golf Course marks the end of the trail.
When Oregon sought statehood, the region north of the Columbia River had to become a territory. The Washington Territory was established in 1853. The US wanted to make sure that the native Indians wouldn't cause trouble for the new residents. In order to ensure the livability of the areas, a man named Issac Stevens was assigned to have treaties signed with each of the Indian tribes.

The Squaxin, Puyallup, and Nisqually tribes were the first of those treaties. While a treaty was being discussed, in the Nisqually Valley, next to the shores of Medicine Creek the native Indians s camped in 1854. While there was some controversy about the representatives from the Nisqually, including Leschi and his brother named Quiemuth actually signed the documents although there were signed in late 1954. In Pierce County there was an Indian uprising called the Indian War within a few months. This Indian War continued between the fall of 1855 and the summer of 1856. The Native Indians were sent to Fox Island if they didn't want to be involved in the hostilities. The Native Indians that remained on the mainland were considered hostiles. The primary target of Governor Stevens's wrath was Chief Leschi, and he hired a volunteer militia to locates and kill these hostiles on sight.

There were many outposts called blockhouses were constructed in order to help the settlers defend themselves against the Indians during this time period. Many families had been killed next to the Puyallup and White Rivers.

The Muck, Clover Creek, Whittier, and Spanaway schools are some of the oldest schools in Pierce County. In 1855 they were established. There are many small symbols left over from this older period as you travel back and forth during your daily routine. With the exception of the HBC's records, currently located in the Northwest room of the Tacoma Library, the ether signs have disappeared.

The previous owner of the historic Exchange tavern and Spanaway resident named Jean Sensel is currently writing a more condensed and comprehensive history of Parkland. The editor of the Pierce prairie post named Marianne Lincoln is also a historian for the Descendants of Fort Nisqually Employees Association. With the help of these descendants, they are putting together the combined stories and knowledge to help construct a more compressive picture of the early days of settlers to the region. The previous Fort Nisqually director named Steve Anderson has compiled two Indian account books that show some of the history of the place names and the local tribal families through letters from the Hudson's Bay Company.
