Kittitas County Real Estate

    From the Cascades… To the Columbia

    Kittitas County /ˈkɪtɪtæs/ is a county located in the U.S. state of Washington. The population was 47,364 in a 2018 census estimate. Its county seat and largest city is Ellensburg.[1] The county was created in November 1883 when it was carved out of Yakima County.[2] Kittitas County comprises the Ellensburg, Washington, Micropolitan Statistical Area.

    There are numerous interpretations of the county’s name, which is from the language of the Yakama Nation. According to one source, it “has been said to mean everything from ‘white chalk‘ to ‘shalerock’ to ‘shoal people’ to ‘land of plenty'”. Most anthropologists and historians concede that each interpretation has some validity depending upon the particular dialect spoken.[3]
