John Alden Shoudy came to the Kittitas Valley in 1871, and purchased a small trading post from Andrew Jackson “A.J.” Splawn, called “Robber’s Roost.” Robber’s Roost was the first business in the valley, other than the early trading that occurred among Native Americans, cattle drivers, trappers, and miners. Shoudy named the town after his wife, Mary Ellen Shoudy, thus officially began the city of Ellensburgh around 1872. The city was originally named Ellensburgh, until the final -h was dropped under standardization pressure from the United States Postal Service and Board of Geography Names in 1894.
