Known primarily as a town not opposed to a lynching now and then, Conconully had its share of run-ins with the bad men of the west. Jailbreaks were frequent as were troubles with Indians. Indian name of Conconully meant "clouds" or anything else that was threatening. Situated in the Okanogan Highlands, a large section of north-central Washington, Conconully was settled by white prospectors who founded the booming silver mining camps of Ruby City and Salmon City that were only a few miles apart. Some original buildings remain along with a small population. The area is now a State Park with a modern campground. Submitted by Henry Chenoweth.
This town was once the county seat of Okanogan and was flooded out around the turn of the century. Okanogan then became the new county seat. Daniel Webster Reid was county sheriff at about this time and was my Great-Grandfather. He later mover the the Wilbur area, married, and farmed near Hesseltine. This location is one of the first reclamation projects of this state. The river that flooded out this town was dammed up creating a lake that is excellent as a camping site and also boating and fishing. Submitted by: Wayne Reid
