Washington derives its name from the first President of the United States, George Washington. Originally considered part of the Oregon Territory, the area now known as Washington State was re-designated as the Washington Territory in 1853. Washington became a state in 1889, shortly before the Industrial Era began in full force in this region of the U.S. The rich natural resources and availability of hydroelectric power allowed Washington to harness industrial power to enhance its economic status in the challenging markets of the 20th century.
