Washington Territory's Klickitat County (1861-1893): Christian Beginnings In An Isolated Corner, Jerry Rushford

Jerry Rushford

The American Restoration Movement (Churches of Christ/Christian Churches) had its origins in West Virginia, Kentucky and Tennessee in the early years of the nineteenth century. It grew rapidly in the Midwestern states of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, and Iowa, and following the Civil War many members of the movement migrated to the northwest corner of the country. This essay focuses on Christian beginnings in isolated and sparsely-populated Klickitat County in Washington Territory.
