1890 Spokane Falls, Northwestern Industrial Exposition

"In the beginning" Spokane was named for the Spokane Tribe, spelled 'Spokan' and translated to "Children of the Sun" in English. The white village, which grew along the Spokane River was later named Spokane Falls. Spokane dropped the "Falls" after a "Great Fire" in 1889 razed the town. Upon rebuilding the town, Spokane hosted "The World's Fair of the North West"*

Today, Eastern WA, Northern ID. Western MT and Eastern Oregon are referred to as "The Inland Empire" of the Pacific Northwest.
