Jake Klicker came from Buffalo, NY to Sprague, Washington Territory while working for the Northern Pacific Railroad from 1872–1882. Jake arrived in Walla Walla that same year. In his spare time, he and his brothers homesteaded what would later be called Klicker Mountain. He married Almina Ross Garland in 1893 and opened a hotel and bottling works. Almina began raising strawberries, which is still in operation to this day.  Jake and Almina’s ventures are somewhat typical of families setting out to make a living in the frontier west. 

Jake Klicker is portrayed by Ron Klicker.
