History & History Related Items

A Catholic mission was established here in 1873, from which the town began. The settlement was known as "Mission" for obvious reasons. Later, in 1904, it was found there was another community in Washington with the name of Mission, so the name of Cashmere was suggested by James H. Chase because the beautiful scenery here was like the famous Indian "Vale of Kashmir."
