Moses Lake is located in the center of the Columbia Basin and is a relatively young agricultural community. The small amount of industry located here is all agriculturally oriented, and school maintenance and operation at this time are financed largely by special levies. This has not always been the case for this school district. During the district's fastest growth period, 1950-1960 the population within the city limits increased from 2,679 to 11,299 (1:1). Community members at that time were largely employed by the governmen�� or by companies holding government contracts. It was in- this period of high activity that the majority of the school district buildings were constructed.
