Leavenworth is a small city located in Chelan County in central Washington. As of the 2000 census, the population was 2,074 residents. Nestled in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains, the alpine village of Leavenworth offers a taste of Bavaria and Bavarian architecture, delicious bratwurst and other German specialties. However, Leavenworth's history began with the Yakima, Chinook and Wenatchi Indian Tribes. The Native American tribes lived by hunting the land for deer and elk, as well as fishing Icicle Creek for salmon. Surrounded by some of the most beautiful and bountiful lands in North America, the three tribes co-existed from Lake Wenatchee to the Icicle and beyond. The area was soon settled by pioneers in search of gold, furs and fertile farmland, however, and by 1890, a town had formed and was called "Icicle Flats." The railroad brought more opportunities and the town thrived until a re-routing of the railroad forced the closure of the town's sawmill. In the 1960s, town leaders switched their focus to tourism. Today, with a completely renovated downtown area, Leavenworth offers a variety of accommodations, specialty shops and galleries, restaurants and spas. Using the surrounding alpine mountains as a backdrop, the town was transformed into a Bavarian village. Several festivals are held in Leavenworth each year also, including the Autumn Leaf Festival, Maifest and the popular Christmas Lighting Ceremony.
