SPOKANE
Washington, U.S.A.
A SCENIC WASHINGTON TOWN
Welcome to Spokane, Washington.
Spokane is located on the Spokane River, west of the Rocky Mountain foothills and 92 miles south of the Canadian border. The city is home to around 209,000 people, making it the second largest city in Washington. Known as the birthplace of Father's Day, the city is officially nicknamed the Lilac City. The name of the city derives from the very first humans who lived in the area, the Spokane people. In their language, Salishan, "spokane" meant children of the sun. The Salishan people arrived in the area between 13,000 and 8,000 years ago, and lived a peaceful life until the European settlers arrived. Explorer David Thompson discovered the area and established the North West Company's Spokane House in 1810. The trading post comprised the first long-term European settlement in Washington, and after the construction of the Northern Pacific Railway in 1881, the settlement continued to grow. The city was incorporated the same year, with the name Spokane Falls. Today, Spokane is a vibrant city and a gateway to the American west.
