Historical Note:

In 1894, members of the Ross family of Puyallup proposed to deed to the college a tract of forty acres of logged land with a spring on the condition that the college should buy a certain tract of twenty acres of cultivated land and devote the entire area to an experiment station.

The station thus established was not a branch of the experiment station at Pullman founded under the provisions of the Hatch Act funds, but after 1887 and was not under the immediate direction of home station. It formed a distinct division of the institution answerable directly to the President of the college and to the Board of Regents.

Initially, the station was supported almost exclusively by Hatch Act funds, but after 1897, when this source stopped, it was forced to close several times until 1907, when adequate appropriation bill was passed and the station was officially designated "Western Washington Experiment Station."

About 1912, the station established a winter school for special courses in poultry and dairy industry. Large attention was also given to problems in plant pathology and the small fruit industry.

The station has served to bring the best results of agricultural practice into western Washington rather than devoting itself to purely scientific problems, not being hampered by many of the restrictions of the federal laws under the provisions of the Hatch and Adams Acts. The station is presently known as the Western Washington Research and Extension Center.
