Whitman County, home to Pullman, was born in 1871. This county produces more barley, wheat, dry peas, and lentils than anywhere else in the United States. Yet while they have a large agricultural system, over thirty percent of the residents work at Washington State University- making it the largest employer in the area. This eastern county that borders Idaho offers quite a few state parks and outdoor recreation, making it ideal for families and students alike.
