Early Oregon ~ Postcards to Litha: M. Horan, The Wenatchee Apple King

Last Friday I posted a couple of postcards that were sent to my Great Grandma Litha.  This is the third one out of four.  It looks like that a little girl named Mabel was going to send this to Litha, but there is no postmark.  Last week's postcards were mailed to Litha in 1909.

M. Horan was one of the founders of the
"4th Class City of Wenatchee".

First Officials:

'The election for the first city officials was held on December 5, 1892.  The inaugural mayor of Wenatchee was Posey Wilson. The City Council members included R. J. Mackison, T. J. Graves, W. A. Sanders, W. B. Mercer, and M. Horan. Arthur Gunn was the first treasurer who worked with J. J. Browne and the Columbia Valley Bank in Spokane. Gunn was also involved with the Wenatchee Advance, and worked with James Hill, president of the Great Northern Railway to produce the first irrigation system in the Wenatchee Valley.'

On January 16, 1893, the first city council meeting was held shortly after Wenatchee became a city of the fourth class. Wenatchee would be re-incorporated as a third-class city in 1904."
