Washington Apple Country

Paula Frederick

Local artist Paula Frederick maintains a gallery onsite at the Cashmere Cider Mill. You may find Paula herself painting by the creek. Her painting style reflects the region through oils and recycling rustic barn woods used to create frames. Long time Washington resident Paula found her inner art emerge only in the last 8 years. Mother of 3 children, the empty nest provided the time to explore her new adventure. She has been commissioned to create paintings for well know locations in North Central Washington, Mission Ridge Ski Resort, Liberty Orchards, makers of Aplets and Cotlets, Anjou Bakery, Antique Mall of Cashmere, Smallwood's Harvest, Chateau Faire La Pointe Winery, and Cashmere Cider Mill, home of Lady Blush, to name a few.

The Cashmere Museum Cashmere, Washington

Cashmere's history dates to the 1860s, when a Catholic missionary came to the area to set up a school for Native Americans. The town is located in the Wenatchee Valley in the center of the state on the North Cascade Loop. It has strong timber and fruit industries.

The museum's ongoing exhibits include the Pioneer Village, which features 21 restored buildings, set up as they would have been in the late 19th century, and excellent dioramas of local wildlife. For rail buffs, the museum has a section of railroad with a depot, section house, passenger car and a Great Northern caboose.
