Covington, Washington - 98042
Once known as Jenkins Prairie, Covington, Washington is now a thriving city. In the 1880's this was the Northern Pacific Railway's stop between Auburn, WA, and Kanasket, WA. They built the stop to improve the primary East - West route across Stampede Pass. A railroad surveyor by the name of Richard Covington was the primary surveyor working on the Auburn to Kanasket stretch. The stop was eventually established and named after him. In 1890 the Covington Lumber Company was formed at the Soos Creek and Northern Pacific Railway junction. A dam was built on the creek to create a log pond, and even back in the day the Game Department required them to put in a fish ladder for the salmon. The lumber mill was widely known until the Great Depression, and eventually was removed in 1940. Officially founded in 1997 on August 31st, the city has continued to grow and is now booming with diversity. Being a new city, and neighboring more rural areas, Covington also has a very diverse population of wildlife.
