Douglas County was created in 1883 and the county seat is Waterville. It is a predominantly rural county located in north central Washington. The county's proximity to Grand Coulee Dam just over the county line (spanning the Columbia River between Okanogan and Grant counties), as well as the four Columbia River dams within the county have over time provided work for thousands of Douglas County residents. The Columbia River, either flowing through its channel or constricted in equalizing reservoirs behind dams, almost completely encircles Douglas County, which is bordered by Chelan County to the west, Okanogan County to the north, Grant County to the east/southeast, and a small part of Kittitas County to the south. Agriculture, especially apple, pear, and cherry orchards, and wheat, provides a significant percentage of the county's employment (Source: The Online Encyclopedia of Washington State History, HistoryLink.org).
