About OthelloFounded on a Northern Pacific branch rail line in 1902, Othello was named for the Shakespeare play. The town, located in the heart of the Columbia Basin Project, boomed when irrigation waters transformed the surrounding desertlike environment into a productive farming region. Potatoes are a principal crop.
