The history of the northwestern United States is shaped by an understanding of geography: the physical features and processes of the area; the people who have inhabited the area (the Native Americans, explorers, traders, and missionaries); and the events: exploration, immigration, wars, treaties, railroads, and the emergence of the United States. The 20th century continued to shape the Northwest through growth of industry, immigration, and statehood.
