Welcome to the Spokane Valley Heritage Museum's Archives Website!


The Spokane Valley is rich with History. Originally, the ancestral homelands of the Coeur d'Alene Tribe, the Valley has many other historic and cultural sites commemorating the Indian Wars, the Mullan Trail and the first store, post office and home in the region. Fur trappers, Miners, the Army, the Missionary Priests and many others walked or rode the many trails winding through the Valley.

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 200 years of memories, artifacts, archives, photographs, maps and much more. Putting it all together and connecting you with your heritage is our mission. We have a searchable database where the museum archive collection is compiled.

If you can't visit us, we can research your inquiries for you.
