The open range

People talk all the time about how rural Spokane Valley used to be - full of orchards and farms. But it can be a hard thing to picture while driving down a major commerical and commuter corridor like Sullivan Road. This aerial view of the corner of Sprague and Sullivan looking north was taken in 1965. See which landmarks you can pick out.

Ranching in Newman Lake

We haven't had a historic photo for a while, so here's a look back at the ranching culture that used to be so prevalent in the Valley area. This haying picture was taken on the James Day Ranch at Newman Lake circa early 1920s. The photo is courtesy of the Spokane Valley Heritage Museum. See anyone you recognize?

Anyone out there have any memories of the Pavillion? The photo is courtesy of the Spokane Valley Heritage Museum.
