1876 Yesler Seattle Sawmill Grand Territorial Lottery Ticket

 

Henry Yesler arrived in Seattle in 1852 and built a steam-powered sawmill. He became a pioneering economic founder and Mayor of Seattle but maintained a fractious relationship with the City - there were many lawsuits back and forth.

Henry Yessler

In 1876 Yesler arrange the First Grand Lottery of Washington Territory. The first prize was the Seatlle Saw Mill valued, he said, at $100,000. The eventual winner however was not given possession of the Saw Mill. It was a scandal.
