Located within the city limits of the rural town of Tenino, which achieved national fame during the Great Depression and just recently during the COVID-19 Pandemic. After the local bank closed, the town government temporarily issued wooden money scrip for use locally when cash was scarce. However, most of the wooden money was never redeemed as it became a collector’s item. It’s almost as if history is repeating itself in Tenino. The original press to make the wooden money during the depression era is from the year 1890 is located in the Tenino Depot Museum. For the last several years, the press was making novelty collector’s items and gifts. Now in response to the pandemic, the city will use the piece of their past to save their future. The wooden scrip program will help those who can’t afford resources in these tough times.
