Where did ‘Wapato’ Get Its Name? We Have the Answer!
As a kid we had an old joke.
Person 1: "Wanna go to Wapato?"
Person 2: "Sure!"
Person 1: stomps on their foot
If you ever wanted to know why that town is named Wapato, here's what we know.
Originally it was named Simcoe but they changed it to Wapato at the turn of the 1900s because it was confusing those from Fort Simcoe as they are two different places.
I like Wapato better, anyways.
