Names to Know

One of the most famous crooners and beloved actors of all time hailed from Spokane, and you’ll find the city is proud to claim his heritage and humble beginnings. Bing Crosby, perhaps most noted for his performances in White Christmas, Going My Way and the Road to… musical comedy series, is memorialized throughout the city with the Bing Crosby Theater (née the Old Clemmer where he first performed) and Gonzaga University's Crosbyana Room where the crooner studied law before being beckoned by Hollywood. Other notables who once called Spokane home include Emmy Award–winning actor Craig T. Nelson and Academy Award–winning actress Hilary Swank.
