A new Spokane Valley Heritage Museum exhibit commemorating the sesquicentennial of the American Civil War is open. The Civil War divided the United States in two, left more than 750,000 dead and resulted in the release of four million people from bondage. Passing over the traditional chronological approach, the exhibition is arranged by themes such as, “Weapons & Warfare,” “Lincoln Family Life,” “State of Medical Care,” and much more. Two local Civil War vets who homesteaded in Greenacres are also profiled.

Current Exhibits

“The Colors of Patriotism”
During WWII, the US Military was segregated. Learn about the American Citizens who in spite of discrimination, served heroically. This exhibit honors the Tuskegee Airmen and their service to their country, specifically, Lt Col Jack Holsclaw, North Central HS 1935. Pilots of B 17’s and B 24’s are forever grateful to the “Red Tails” for escorting the bombers into enemy territory. The exhibit includes the 442nd Regimental Combat Unit, all Japanese Americans who answered the call to serve. Still the most decorated unit in the US Military. Spokane Valley resident Fred Shiosaki’s story is featured.

“Northwest Heritage, 1800 – 1890”
The Spokane Valley was originally the ancestral homeland of the Coeur d Alenes and the Upper Band of the Spokane Tribe. Pow wows were held in the Valley along the Spokane River bringing the Palouse, Nez Perce and other tribes for annual games, trading and storytelling. The exhibit includes the stories of the Fur Traders, the Missionary Priests, Antoine Plante, the Mullan Road and more. The 200 yr. old Nez Perce canoe inspires a new perspective of what it took to navigate the waterways.

Other exhibits:
Grand Coulee Dam: Master of the Land “Electrifying the Modern Woman”, “Telecommunications”, “One-room schoolhouse days” and more.
