Yakima Valley Museum

This week’s Vintage Yakima photo from the 1960s shows downtown storefronts on Yakima Avenue. Pictured from left are Nordstrom’s, Dunbar Jewelers, MacDougall’s, Hartfields and J.J. Newberry Co.

A similar scene from a street-level view shows the former Nordstrom’s, and later Mills Music, building at the corner of 3rd Street and Yakima Avenue is now the site of a new development.
