Glockenblume

Glockenblume

A city of roughly 175,000 people spilling East of a pass in the Northern Washington stretch of the Cascade mountains. Glockenblume is traced back to the construction of a single but substantial lodge (still standing on Gold Hill) The Glockenblume (Bell Flower) lodge, from which the city takes it’s name, was an inn run by three sisters (Ingrid, Maud, and Gretta Totenkinder) who traveled to America from Germany in the early 1800’s. A settlement slowly grew around the lodge, situated just East of the Cascades. It was not long before loggers and trappers filled the lodge on a constant basis. There was a heated dispute over lumber claims between the Disautel and the Biles-Coleman logging companies which escalated a handful of times to bloodshed. In the 1850’s the Disautel Logging Company was successful in driving out it’s competitor and built a sawmill in the now booming town. Whispered stories litter Glockenblume’s history involving residents disappearing and though a number are assumed to be related to shady business practices of varying legitimacy, there seems to be a large amount that remain unexplained. To this day the town remains primarily a logging town, with several other growing industries and a tourist season that brings the town from ~175,000 to ~200,000 with all the hunters and seasonal employees that return to the area.

This city is traced back to construction of one old lodge (still standing on Brimmer’s Hill) The Glockenblume (Bell Flower) lodge was an inn run by three sisters (Ingrid, Maud, and Gretta Totenkinder) from Germany in the early 1800’s. A settlement slowly grew around the lodge, situated just East of the Cascades. It was not long before loggers and trappers filled the lodge on a constant basis. There was a heated dispute over lumber claims between the Disautel and the Biles-Coleman logging companies which escalated a handful of times to bloodshed. Eventually the Disautel Logging Company was successful in driving out it’s competitor and built a sawmill in the now booming town. Whispered stories litter Glockenblume’s history involving residents disappearing (children in particular) and though some is known about the sisters, both their origin and final fate remain shrouded in mystery. To this day the town remains primarily a logging town with population that grows significantly during hunting season from it’s usual ~150,000 to ~200,000 with all the hunters and seasonal employees that return to the area. The industries in the city include Logging, Manufacturing, Forestry, and Tourism primarily though a large technology firm has built satellite campuses in Glockenblume.
