Yakima was incorporated as North Yakima in 1886 after the town moved four miles from present day Union Gap to a site adjacent to the Yakima River and where the railroad route would be. The community changed the name from North Yakima to Yakima in 1918. Today, the city is an agricultural and industrial center located 100 miles southeast of Seattle and is known for the abundance of fruit orchards and farms that lie throughout the valley. The city of Yakima has a fine example of an art deco tower, the Larson Building, which was completed in the early 1930s.
