  • Description
  • In 1898, the gold-rush town of Republic, in the northeast corner of Washington state, began to attract Jews, including Simon Bazinski, and others with the lure of gold and the need to outfit gold miners. As many as 25 Jewish families settled in the area for the next 12 years but most moved away to Seattle or Spokane by 1920.
