Welcome to Klickitat County. As a rural community, we are proud of the country lifestyle and heritage our region offers. If you are new to our area or thinking of relocating here, especially from an urban environment, you may be interested to know more about customs and culture in our County. Rural living can require some "adjusting to" and is often very different from a recent urban dweller's expectations.
This booklet is intended to assist in the adjustment process and help newcomers understand the "rules of the west," we live by, as well as the County's position in terms of services and resources available.
