A Brief History of Washington
- The state of Washington was first explored by the Lewis and Clark expedition in the early 19th century, and was formed out of the original Oregon territory which was ceded to the U.S. by Britain in 1848. Washington was formed into a state in 1889 and the city of Seattle really helped the state’s population to grow, as it is the main transportation hub of the entire state. Broken into several different regions thanks to the Cascade Mountains, western Washington has long been known for its timber production while eastern Washington – much more arid and barren – has been extensively modified to support agriculture. Washington today is the U.S.’ leading producer of apples, timber, lentils, pears, red raspberries and edible dried peas. It is also known for its manufacturing, particularly of aircraft and military hardware.
What to Expect when Shipping to or from Washington
- The problem with transporting a vehicle to or from the state of Washington is the fact that it’s located in the north-westernmost corner of the U.S., and is surrounded by states that are not as populous nor as popular in terms of auto transport. Seattle is a major transportation hub in the state, and connects to much of the western metro areas in Oregon and California such as Portland, Sacramento and Los Angeles via I-5. However, getting to Washington from the eastern parts of the U.S. is a bit trickier, considering the fact that the only major east-west interstate into Washington is I-90, which runs through the northernmost parts of the U.S. I-90 may be a popular route for citizens to drive along, but not auto transporters; as such shipping from California to Washington will undoubtedly be cheaper than shipping from the eastern parts of the U.S. You can also learn more about the state of Washington by visiting its official website.
