Fun Facts

Established in 1881, Spokane—originally dubbed Spokane Falls—was named in honor of the Spokane Native American tribe. Spokane means “Children of the Sun” in Salish—a fitting name considering Spokane’s geography and how the Cascade and Rocky Mountains shield the city from the otherwise undesirable weather of the Pacific Northwest climate. As the metropolitan center of the Northwest Inland region, Spokane’s population is about 200,000.
