Ellensburg was founded in the late 19th century, and many of the buildings, such as the Historic Davidson Building, from that time still make for a rustic scene downtown.

Words such as adventuriest, to provide never-ending adventure. Let’s start off one the best Pechakucha-iest year in Ellensburg with the event on January 28. See everyone there!
