About RitzvilleLocated in the heart of Washington's wheat-growing region, Ritzville is named for late 19th-century homesteader Philip Ritz. By 1904 the town was a major wheat shipping point and billed itself—with perhaps a touch of grandiosity—as the “breadbasket of the world.”
The Channeled Scablands, north of Ritzville, form a landscape of eroded features created by cataclysmic floods during the last Ice Age.
