Yakima is a city in the Yakima Valley in north central Yakima County. It is a progressive trading center for a wide area of the central portion of the state. The settlement started in 1861 at the north entrance of the valley at Union Gap and later moved to the present site. It was incorporated as Yakima City on December 1, 1883. When the Northern Pacific Railway Company failed to secure concessions from the town in 1884 they established a station four miles west and moved over one hundred buildings from Yakima City to the new townsite free of charge. The new town was called North Yakima. On January 1, 1918, the Washington State Legislature changed the name of North Yakima to Yakima, and the name of Yakima City to Union Gap. With subsequent growth, the two places have joined boundaries.
The Naches River rises at Naches Pass east of the crest of the Cascades, in three forks, near Pyramid Peak. It flows southeast between Yakima and Kittitas counties, then through Yakima to the Yakima River a mile north of Yakima.
