Spokane Tidbits

Spokane, Washington is located west of the foothills of Rocky Mountains on the Spokane River. It is county seat of the County of Spokane. It is also the hub of the metropolitan area in Spokane. Spokane had a population of dome 208,916 people in 2010. It is the 102nd largest community in America and is the second largest city in Washington.

From 8,000 to 13,000 years ago, the first Indians to inhabit the region were known as the Spokane people. The sustained themselves by harvesting the abundant game in the area. Spokane id considered the birthplace of Fathers Day. In 1810, a man named David Thompson the Spokane House. The trading post was the first settlement in Washington. In 1818, the Northern Pacific railroad was completed.

This brought many white pioneers to the Spokane region. The year 1810 also brought the incorporation of Spokane as a city. Silver and gold were discovered on the Northwest inland during the late 1800’s. Following the great fire of 1889, an architect named Kirtland Cutter designed several of the older buildings that were constructed in the style of Romanesque Revival that were located in the downtown region.

The Northwest Museum of Culture and Arts as well as the Manito and Riverfront Parks are all located in Spokane. Other locations of note include the Cathedral of our Lady of Lourdes, the Bing Crosby and Fox theaters, and the Davenport Hotel. The only newspaper in Spokane, which was the Spokesman-Review, had a daily circulation of more than 75,000 copies. Two white fur trappers were sent by the Northwest Fur Company to look for fur in the Rocky Mountains in the late 1800’s.

The Spokane Indian tribe met these two white men, and considered them sacred, and allowed them to live in the Colville River valley for the winter. A man named David Thompson worked as resident of the Columbia Department for the North West Company. Mr. Thompson became the first white man to explore the Inland Empire. Looking for furs, Mr. Thompson wanted to expand the search further south.

After the establishment of the trading post known as the Saleesh House and the Kullyspell House, which are currently located in Montana and Idaho. Mr. Thompson tried to explore even further west. Two trappers named Finan McDonald and Jacques Finlay were sent out by Mr. Thompson. They built a fur trading post in Washington on the Spokane River to trade furs with the local Indians.

In 1810, the trading post was established, at the confluence of the Spokane and the Little Spokane rivers. This became the first significant white settlement in Washington. A reverend named Samuel Parker arrived in the region in 1836, and reported that about 800 Native Indians were living in Spokane Falls. In 1847, after the Whitman family were killed by Indians a reverend named Cushing Eells in established the Whitman College in their memory. The reverend also established Spokanes first church.

The first governor named Isaac Stevens attempted to establish a treaty with a Spokane Indian Chief named Garry. In 1858, a Colonel named George Wright brought the end to the Coeur d’ Arlene War following the last campaign of the Yakima Indian War. The Colonel also won rather major victories when fighting against a confederation of the Indian tribes in engagements at the battles of Spokane Planes and Four Lakes.

The end of these hostilities in the Pacific northwest made for safe habitation by the white pioneers. >From the late 1970’s, through the early 1980s, the growth in Spokane was interrupted in 1981 by yet another national recession in which farm prices, timber, and silver decreased significantly. This time of decline for Spokane endured into the 1990’s, and was also marked by a loss of several jobs that families depended on in the manufacturing sector.

However, the economy in Spokane had begun to take advantage from some measure of economic diversification, although this was certainly a difficult period. Expanding businesses that included Key Tronic and other assembly, marketing, and research, plants of technology companies helped to reduce the dependency on natural resources by Spokane. Spokane was still attempting trying to convert to a more an economy that was more service oriented. This was opposed to a less prominent manufacturing sector in 2014.

The development of the strengths in health and medical sciences in Spokane has experienced some success. This resulted in the expansion of the University District with two additional branches of medical schools. However, Spokane still faces challenges that include pockets of poverty, and the lack of high paying jobs. The downtown area of Spokane was reborn in 1999, which included the expansion of the Spokane Convention Center as well as the construction of the Spokane Arena, after the opening of the River Park Square Mall.

Some of the other major projects include the renovation of the Historic Montvale Hotel as well, as the construction of the Big Easy concert house, which is currently known as the Knitting Factory, the Davenport hotel that was designed by Kirtland Cutter, the Fox Theater, and the completion of the Washington State University Biomedical and Pharmaceutical Sciences Building in 2013 and in 2015, the Davenport Grand Hotel as well as the continuing renovation of Riverfront Park.
