Prosser's Downtown Mural, Part II

By Alys Means
Curator, Benton County Historical Museum
Correction to the last installment of the mural Series: Colonel Prosser moved to North Yakima in 1886.  He served as a delegate to Washington State's Constitutional Convention in 1889.
In the upper left is a red building with white trim.  It's the I.X.L. Livery Stable, which stood at the corner of 6th and Dudley. The I.X.L. - owned by Thorpe Roberts - kept mounts for hire, boarded horses, and sold bailed hay.  Roberts was born in Nova Scotia in 1863 and left home at age twelve to work in lumber camps throughout Canada and the U.S. In 1887, he homesteaded on Horse Heaven and later established the stable.   In 1910 a man accused of attacking a teenage girl was tarred and feathered at the I.X.L.   He was later brought to trial and the charges dismissed.  Charges against those who applied the tar and feathers were dropped due to lack of witnesses. 
Kudos to Historic Downtown Prosser Association for a stellar "Autumn Nights" event! Executive Director Dan Smith and his Autumn Nights committee created a fabulous fall fete in the Princess's Green Room last Saturday. The decorations, dinner, scavenger hunt, silent auction, music, comedy and camaraderie were all first rate! What fun!
This Friday, another transformation will occur in our Green Room as we host the fifth annual "Rocky Horror Picture Show" event! RHPS is not a horror film; it is a rock-musical send-up of old science-fiction and horror films. People dress up in costumes, yell back lines at the movie and act out the film with a bag of props.

Alan and Charlotte Friberg shared their recent experience visiting their daughter and son-in-law in Albania with the Prosser Rotary Club on October 23, 2014. Albania is a small country on the Balkan Peninsula in South-eastern Europe. The western edge of the country borders on the Adriatic Sea while the northern part is mountainous. The middle part of the country is flatter where many small family farms are located. Hot summers and cold, wet winters characterize the climate. Summers find farmers joining bands of sheep to graze in the mountains while hay is grown on the farmland. Grain is grown and many families make their own bread. For important celebrations they enjoy Turkish coffee.
