Images of America: Cashmere
The Wenatchi called it Nt’wt’c’kum. Later known as Mission, and then as Cashmere, the community revealed by this fabulous collection of historic photographs assembled by Lance Brender, Cashmere Museum & Pioneer Village and the residents of Cashmere, is warm and welcoming. This collection brings our local history vividly to life.
Local author Lance Burton Brender grew up in Cashmere until the age of 22, when he commissioned into the US Army. With the help of Cashmere's community, he has collected the best histories and photographs of Cashmere from the last 120 years, many of which have never been published before.
The Images of America series celebrates the history of neighborhoods, towns, and cities across the country. Using archival photographs, each title presents the distinctive stories from the past that shape the character of the community today. Arcadia is proud to play a part in the preservation of local heritage, making history available to all.
