Spokane Middle Falls

For centuries the falls of Spokane attracted Indians for salmon fishing in May and June. When white settlers began gathering around the falls, creating a settlement at what is now Howard St. and Spokane Falls Blvd., it was for the power of the water, pushing wheels to mill wheat and saw lumber.

Rest in Peace King Forrest Cole

Today is the funeral for King Cole the President of Expo 74 here in Spokane. Expo 74 really changed downtown Spokane, and today we have a wonderful Riverfront Park as the legacy of King Cole and Expo 74. This first picture was taken of the future Expo site in 1961.

From the Archives: Building of Expo '74

But they saved the elegant tower, which stands 155 feet tall and has a hand-wound four-sided clock. Burlington Northern donated the land and the tower, which, according to a brass plaque on its side, “stands as a monument to the railroad industry and its role in the development of Spokane and the Pacific Northwest.”

Bricks of the Past

Then & Now: The sturdy brick buildings from the first half of the 20th century are reminders that Spokane has always been a regional business center, a place where ambitious business operators came to stake their claim and make a fortune or go bust.
