The Vale’s name may be in reference to a line in Thomas Moore’s poem “Lalla Rookh”: “Who has not heard of the Vale of Cashmere! With its roses the brightest the earth ever gave.”

There is also a park in NYC called the Vale of Cashmere.

Not a fact, but extremely coincidental given the name of the city.

Here is a little more information about the city of Cashmere:

According to the Tacoma Public Library, this is the origin of the name Cashmere.

It was established in 1889, and platted in 1895 as Mission by J. F. Woodring and I. W. Sherman. That name came from a Jesuit mission which had been built in 1863. The present name was given in 1902 since another town in the state carried the name Mission. Responsible for the choice was Judge James H. Chase, who had visited the Vale of Kashmir in India, and liked the name.
