Wallace: The Center Of The Universe?

Apparently when you drive 80 miles outside of Spokane, you arrive at the center of the universe. In some cultures, they call that Wallace, Idaho. It may be the coolest town on I-90 between Coeur d’Alene and Missoula. In fact, I’m pretty sure it is. It’s home to the Oasis Bordello Museum (a former brothel), the Northern Pacific Depot Railroad Museum and most recently, the Wallace Brewing Company. That was my first stop. I was drawn to the word, “brewery”, like a Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus is to a tree. Ten minutes later, I walked out with contact information and a list of their brewskis, but that’s another story for another time/Blush Response. More here.

DFO: I'm posting this blog item to introduce you to new "Friends of Huckleberries" blogger Blush Response and to point out that a street sign in Wallace reads: "Center of the Universe."

Question: Is there a more appropriate place in the Inland Northwest to be dubbed "the center of the universe" than Wallace, Idaho?
