Does anyone know a fascinating place name origin? Here's mine: A small town (pop 1700) in Washington, Tenino (rhymes with albino). In bygone logging days a beloved locomotive hauled logs to the mill. And the number on this lokie? 1090...Ten Nine Oh
Tenino is the town where I just moved! I was born 1944 only about 75 miles from here, have liked this town all my life and never knew where its name came from...stories like this all over this magnificent logging country once covered by ancient forests (and some cool prairies, too).
