History

The Teanaway River Valley was first inhabited by members of the Yakama, Cayous, and Nez Perce Indian Tribes. It was part of the summering grounds for these tribes, where they came to gather food.

Teanaway was platted in 1885.

Geography and climate

The Teanaway River Valley is home to the Teanaway River, which has three forks. These are the North Fork, Middle Fork, and West Fork. The Teanaway River Valley is separated from the town of Cle Elum by Cle Elum Ridge.

Teanaway is home to one of the few confirmed wild wolf populations in the State of Washington.

Like all of Eastern Washington, the Teanaway Valley sits in the rain shadow of the Cascade Mountains. Most overcast conditions to the west don't make it over, leaving this area sunnier than those areas to the west. The area is also subject to temperatures that are colder in the winter, and warmer in the summer, than those areas to the west (such as Seattle), and is also drier.

Economy

A large solar plant was planned for the Teanaway area. The project has since been cancelled.

Transport

Highway 10 and highway 970 meet in Teanaway. Highway 970 runs through the valley.

Teanaway is served by a small airfield, DeVere Field.
