Spokane Overview from Encycropedia
Spokane City, the seat of Spokane co., E Wash., at the spectacular falls of the Spokane River; inc. 1881. It is a port of entry and the commercial, transportation, and industrial center of a productive region known as the "Inland Empire", comprising E Washington, N Idaho, W Montana, NE Oregon, and S British Columbia. The irrigated farms of the Columbia basin project contribute to the city's prosperity. The area has mineral deposits (gold, silver, copper) and cattle ranches and yields wheat, fruit, and other farm products. Spokane's industries include lumbering, food processing and packing, aluminum smelting, metal refining, and the manufacture of paper, clay, and cement products. A trading fort was established there in 1810; settlement began in 1871. In 1889 a great fire destroyed most of the town, but it was rapidly rebuilt. Spokane is a focus of cultural and educational activities and also has several parks. The city has an international airport and is the seat of Gonzaga Univ., Whitworth College, and Fort Wright College. Spokane is a gateway to two national forests, recreational areas, numerous lakes, and several nearby resorts. The city hosted the EXPO '74. The Spokane Air Force Base contributes to the economy.
*Quoted from Infoplease.com.
The trading post at Spokane was the first non-Indian settlement of the Pacific Northwest. Settlers learned quickly that a trip to Spokane meant profitable business and good hospitality.
The Northwest Fur Co. was established in 1810 soon after the Lewis and Clark expedition came through the area. They opened operations alongside the Little Spokane River about 10 miles from what is now Spokane. In 1872, the real beginnings of Spokane came into life at Spokane Falls. Fur trading ceased to be the predominant business of the area with lumber and grain taking over. In 1889 a devastating fire destroyed much of the city. Though a tragedy, the fire spurred the community to build more and better. This development has continued through the years since that time.
