Needing censuses for your Washington research?
If you're wanting and needing census information from the late 1800s until Washington became a state, they are available. The above heading was for a complete, full page, county by county, of what state censuses were taken for which counties and for which years. Yes, most of these are for counties on the west side of the state. This is because the state was eagerly counting and re-counting its people waiting to reach the "magic number" of citizens that would qualify Washington for statehood. Spokane did have an 1885 and 1887 enumeration.
