Spokane Valley Heritage Museum
12114 E. Sprague Ave., Spokane Valley, WA
The Spokane Valley Heritage Museum was formed to collect, preserve and exhibit the history and culture of the Spokane Valley for the education and inspiration of the community. The Spokane Valley is rich with History. From the first permanent settler, Antoine Plante, in 1849, to the incorporation of the City of Spokane Valley in 2003, we have collected and catalogued over 150 years of memories, artifacts and everything else you can name. Putting it all together and connecting you with your heritage is our mission. Our dream has been, since the beginning, to compile everything into a searchable computer database. Now, this dream has finally coming to fruition.
- The Colors of Patriotism: This exhibit honors the veterans of WWII. A new Spokane Valley Heritage Museum exhibit commemorating the sesquicentennial of the American Civil War opened Aug 1st. The Civil War divided the United States in two, left more than 750,000 dead and resulted in the release of four million people from bondage. Passing over the traditional chronological approach, the exhibition is arranged by themes such as, “Weapons & Warfare,” “Lincoln Family Life,” “State of Medical Care,” and much more. Two local Civil War vets who homesteaded in Greenacres are also profiled.
