Sumner, WA Tidbits

Some members of a wagon train went through Naches Pass and crossed over the Cascade Mountains to settle in a rich river valley in an agricultural community at the junction of Stuck Creek and the Puyallup River in 1853. They grew crops that included turf grass, vegetables, berries, hops, rhubarb, and daffodils.

A man who had come west from Wisconsin named George Ryan arrived in the area in 1873. A woman named Laura Seaman sold Mr. Ryan 40 acres of land where he raised hops, vegetables, and fruit. Mr. Ryan also helped to establish the railroad depot, built a large section of the business district, and owned a sawmill. The community of Sumner now cares for the Ryan House, which is operated by the Sumner Historical Society and is part of its parks system.

A man named John Kincaid owned the 160 acres where the community was platted in 1883. The development of this community was influenced by the establishment of the Northern Pacific rail line through the region as well as the building of the depot. This depot is located within a 15 minute walk from the core residential and the downtown area. The year 1891 brought the incorporation of Sumner as a town. The first mayor was Mr. George Ryan.

In 1900, the population of Sumner was reported to be 538 people. This population had increased to approximately 8,400 people by 1998. Along with distribution and warehousing, the production of wood products, and the manufacture of food, agriculture is still very important to the local economy.

Stuck Junction was the first name of the community. A man names J Stewart later helped to establish a post office that services the region currently known as Sumner and Puyallup. Mr. Stewart named the region in honor of his hometown in the state of New York and called it Franklin.

Another post office in the current Sumner region was required after the old post office was moved. The home of Mr. Ryan became the location of new post office and the first post mistress was Mrs. Ryan. However, delivering the mail was confusing because there were numerous communities name Franklin and the US Postal Department requested a new name for the post office. Three townsmen named George Ryan, L Thompson, and John Kincaid couldn't agree on a name. They each placed a name on a slip of paper and placed the slips of paper into a hat. A boy was called into the store to pick out one of those slips of paper, and the winner was Sumner.

During the 1800's a popular statesman and Senator from Massachusetts was a man named Charles Sumner who was known for his efforts to abolish slavery, in addition to other issues. In 1891, after the community was incorporated, the name of Sumner was given to the railroad depot.

During the 1900's, Many of the farmers of Japanese descent. Many of these Japanese farmers were sent to internment camps during WW II. Their farms were rented by their neighbors, who kept them going in their absence. Although, some of these Japanese farmers didn't return to their farms when the war ended, many did return and took up farming once more. These farmers of Japanese descent took their rhubarb the Vegetable Growers of Puget Sound, when the war ended.

The Rhubarb Growers of Sumner increased their visibility nationally. In 1948, a man named Amiel Goettsch took over as manager of this association, although he refused to travel. The farmers realized that in order to be successful they needed to have a man traveling. A man named George Richter, who resided in Puyallup was very much into field rhubarb. In order to promote his crops he would travel independently. In an attempt to recruit for this job, George and his wife traveled all around Washington and Idaho. Although nobody wanted to leave their stable jobs, they talked to men who were working in the produce departments of Safeway. Finally, George decided to take the job and his son named ED took over his farm and worked promoting Sumner Rhubarb from 1956 through 1957. Between the late 1960's and the early 1970's, the Growers of Sumner Rhubarb hosted the American Rhubarb Growers in Puyallup.

The two associations began working together and they combined their marketing and promotional efforts into the Washington Rhubarb Growers in 1957. However, for several more years, they would still maintain separate organizations and financials.

Finally, the two associations completely merged into the current Washington Rhubarb Growers Association in 1974. At the time there were less than 60 remaining growers in Puget Sound, and they were primarily growing rhubarb.

These days, the rhubarb doesn't travel by train but rather by trucks and there are only a few farmers left in the association. However, many families in Sumner are still farming and growing and most of the rhubarb in the country continues to be grown in the Puyallup Valley around Sumner.
