Even as the population grew, settlements to the east of the area remained small. The sandy shores of the Columbia River and the arid lands of Badger Mountain made them undesirable to settlers looking to move to greener pastures.

In 1908, the new Columbia River Bridge brought irrigated water and connected the town to the larger Wenatchee region. It also transformed the sandy and dry areas of East Wenatchee into habitable territory. The city was incorporated in 1935 and started to expand in the 1950s when subdivisions started spreading out in the area.
