During the last 1880s many Northwest newspapers and magazines published accounts or advertising articles about Ellensburg and the Kittitas Valley. The N.W. Magazine's artists illustrated several new buildings in Ellensburg which were constructed after the July 1889 fire. The Nash Block was located on the southeast corner of Fifth and Main Streets. Since the Lloyds Opera House was on Third Street, it is not known if there were any performances at the Nash Opera House.Artistic rendering for the N. W. Magazine of the Nash Opera House in Ellensburg, Washington.
