Goldendale was settled around the end of 1850 by Mortimer Thorp. Eventually John J. Golden purchased the site and the town of Goldendale was named after John Golden, and officially formed on March 13, 1872.
John Golden’s house still stands and is viewable at Columbus and Collins St. in downtown Goldendale. In 1878 Goldendale became the Klickitat county seat, and the town was officially incorporated on November 14, 1879.
