About Yelm

Yelm is a city in Thurston County, Washington, United States. The population was 3,289 at the 2000 census. The current mayor is Ron Harding. His daughter, Janet Harding, was Miss Washington for 2008 after winning the title of Miss Tahoma.

Yelm ranked 10th of 279 eligible incorporated communities in population growth between 2000 and 2005.

History

The word "Yelm" comes from the Coast Salish word "shelm" which means "land of the dancing spirits" their interpretation of the moir effect of heat rising off the prairie.

The Yelm Prairie was originally inhabited by members of the Nisqually Indian Tribe and provided good pasture for their horses. The first permanent European-American settlers came in 1853 to join the Hudson's Bay Company sheep farmers who were already conducting business in the area.

James Longmire, one of the first American settlers had this to say upon arriving in Yelm:

Having received due notice from the Hudson Bay company not to settle on any lands north of the Nisqually River we crossed the river and went to Yelm prairie, a beautiful spot. I thought as it lay before us covered with tall waving grass, a pretty stream bordered with shrubs and tall trees, flowing through it, and the majestic mountain standing guard over all, in its snowy coat, it was a scene fit for an artist. Herds of deer wandered at leisure through the tall grass.

With the coming of the Northern Pacific Railway in 1873, Yelm began to prosper, having found an outlet for its agricultural and forestry products. Its economic base was further enhanced in the early 1900s when an irrigation company was formed in 1916, making Yelm a center for commercial production of beans, cucumbers, and berries.

Yelm was officially incorporated on December 10, 1924.

During the Great Depression, the Yelm Irrigation Company was bankrupted by high maintenance costs and an unstructured water distribution plan.

Present day Yelm

Present day Yelm is a bedroom community for residents working in the surrounding cities of Tacoma, Olympia and Centralia. Yelm also hosts a large number of military families who are currently or were formerly stationed at nearby Fort Lewis and McChord Air Force Base. Ramtha's School of Enlightenment, located on an 80-acre campus just outside the city limits, draws hundreds of students to the area for events throughout the year.

The Yelm post office and school district (zip code 98597) serve the surrounding unincorporated Thurston County residential communities in the Bald Hills of Lake Lawrence and Clearwood.

Yelm is home of the first Class A Water Reclamation Facility and distribution system in Washington state. This system reclaims all of its waste water which is used in local irrigation and added to recharge streams and a wetland park that includes a catch-and-release pond for rainbow trout.
