Fun and Informative!

As a frequent business traveler to Spokane, I stumbled across this App. Loaded with tidbits of interesting history and lore, it is a great companion to have while wandering around Spokane and helps explain art pieces and landmarks. Well done!

I love this app!

My some is studying the history of Spokane and every night we read something new and interesting. Sometimes we look up the locations that we are reading about. That is how I stumbled on this app.

It is full of interesting facts and bring our past to life. I wish I had discovered this app a long time ago.

My only complaint is that I can't wait for the historic boundaries to be expanded beyond the immediate Spokane area.

Fun Historical App

This app is great for discovering more about Spokane and it's history! I've had fun clicking each historical place and reading about and seeing photos of the location. I haven't found anything thing else online that combines some much historical information about Spokane in such a easy to use and fun way.
