Description

This old, unique view of Third Street in about 1895 showed a glimpse of early day Ellensburg. The Owl Drug Store on the right was located on the northwest corner of Third and Pearl Streets. Continuing west on the north side of Third Street were the S. R. Geddis Building, the Cadwell-Lyons Building and across Main Street the Shoudy-Cadwell Building. The original 1886 Northern Pacific Railroad Depot can be seen in the distance. Third Street was well known for its many saloons, smoke shops, bath and boarding houses. All travelers and visitors arriving on the train walked or rode in hotel carriages along Third Street into the main business district of Ellensburg.
