County Profiles

Yakima County Profile

Yakima County Outline Yakima County, a state and national leader in several farm products, is located in south central Washington. Named after the Yakama Indians, whose large reservation covers nearly 39 percent of the area, the county lies partly in the Cascade Range and partly in upfolded ridges and a broad irrigated valley of the Columbia Plateau. Yakima, as a name, is from the Indian word "eyakima" meaning "well fed people." Yakima County was created by the Washington Territorial Legislature on January 21, 1865.
