Spokane Valley Heritage Museum
Spokane Valley Heritage Museum features displays and exhibits about the heritage of Spoken Valley. Our displays are always changing, make sure you don’t miss out on any history.
While we have many wonderful things on display in our various exhibits, our collection is not limited to what’s on the floor. We have an entire Archive section in the back of the museum where you can have a seat, turn on a lamp and delve deep into your area of interest. We have binders filled with photos, all organized by subject. We have drawers filled with documents pertaining to everything you might imagine. Our map-case houses irrigation, surveyors, and city and county maps from throughout the last century. Should you have an interest, the Valley Heritage Museum is here to meet your needs.
We were established to provide you with a window into the history of this city, and we are more than willing to assist you in your research.
We are home to thousands of photographs - from the 1850’s through today. These include aerial shots of the Valley, yearbook photos, and a myriad of ‘life shots’ through the years. Who knows? You may just find a picture of your great-granddad posing for a photo in front of H.N. Segerstrom’s orchards, or your best-friend’s grandpa’s aunt’s cousin’s son’s sister-in-law‘s grade-school photo from the 1930’s.
- The Spokane Valley Heritage Museum was formed to collect, preserve and exhibit the history and culture of the Spokane Valley for the education and inspiration of the community. We are a tax exempt organization.
- To demonstrate the need for a center of community identity.
- To establish a heritage center at the historical Opportunity Township Hall as it is the most appropriate location.
- To engage the Community in support of the project.
- To collaborate with other historical entities.
Visitors come in and make past connections nearly every day! Should you find a photograph that you want to take home with you, just ask! For a small fee, we can print a copy of the photo in three different sizes.
