The 1872 North Cascades Earthquake occured in this region on Decmeber 14, 1872. Here is an account of that day: EARTHQUAKE AND LOSS OF CATTLE - We are in receipt of a letter from I.N. Woods, written from River Station, Pen d'Orielle- River and dated Dec. 15, in which the writer says.. "We had a very severe shock of an earthquake on the afternoon of the 14th- At the time we first felt the earth move James Bradley was crossing his cattle and horses over the Pen d'Orielle River, on the ice, when the ice suddenly commenced jumping up and breaking to pieces, letting the cattle and horses into the river. Out of 71 head of cattle Mr. Bradley succeeded in saving 21 head. The horses all came ashore: some of them were badly cut up by- being jammed between the ice- This is all the damage that I have heard of being done. The water was about four feet higher than usual. It was a fearful shock here."
