Spokane House Interpretive Center

Spokane House Interpretive Center in Nine Mile Falls explores the history of the early fur trade in the area and local Native American culture. It is located on the site of a traditional gathering place for the Spokane Tribe, as well as the first permanent Euro-American settlement in Washington State, an 1810 fur trade post. Visitors can learn more about this unique place through an exterior mural and a marked archaeological site adjacent to the facility.

The interpretive center is open Saturdays through Mondays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., May 1 through Sept. 30, and by appointment year-round.

A short self-guided interpretive trail explains the history of gathering food and trading along the Spokane River. A trail also leads to the Peavine Jimmy Barn, one of the oldest structures in Spokane County, and beyond to the confluence with the Little Spokane River.
