Spokane Set In Stone: Selected Historical Monuments, Markers and Points of Interest In and Around Spokane

by Dick Jensen

Reminders of the region's rich history are visible all around us. Many interesting historical events from the region's past and individuals who helped shape its future are memorialized by some type of physical marker in and around Spokane. This attractive guidebook directs the reader to nearly 200 historical monuments, markers and other points of interest. It is abundantly illustrated with photographs and maps, and includes verbatim the inscription from each monument or marker. Well organized into seven geographic grids within and around Spokane. Great for exploratory outings or field trips.

"Historic monuments provide us with a wonderful link, tying our past and present together. Dick Jensen's great compilation guides the reader on a rich and interesting historic excursion throughout our Spokane region. This book is a 'must have' for the history buff." Duane Broyles, President, Fairmount Memorial Association
