Storyline

To avoid losing their logging crew, the Bolt brothers bring 100 prospective brides from Massachusetts to Seattle, using money borrowed from sawmill owner Stempel. Should one of the girls decide to go home, or should they fail to meet Stempel's timber quotas, they will still lose their mountain to him. Written by Ed Stephan <stephan@cc.wwu.edu>

Trivia

The show was inspired by events in the life of Asa Mercer, first president of the Territorial University of Washington, Washington State Senator, and resident of Seattle. Mercer made three 19th-century ocean voyages that sailed to New England to recruit eligible women to move to the Pacific Northwest, where there was an extreme imbalance in the ratio of men to women. The first group reached Seattle on May 16, 1864. Mercer made two more trips that were less successful but married one of the women, Annie Stephens. This story is portrayed in Death Valley Days: Mercer Girl (1957). See more »

Here Come the Brides, My Favorite Show.
6 March 1999 | by dawny-3See all my reviews

I like all the people in the tv show. My favorite actor in the show is Bobby Sherman. My favorite actress is Bridget Hanley. It's one of my favorite shows of all times.

I only wish they would put the episodes on videos, so I could see the the tv shows again.

Thank you, From Here come the Brides fan
