History

Spokane was founded in 1871 when a sawmill was built on the Spokane Falls. In 1889 a fire burned down the downtown area of Spokane. In 1892 the railroad came to Spokane, and this made it easier for people to get into and out of the city. In 1974 Spokane hosted the World's Fair. This brought a lot of people and business into Spokane.
