SPOKANE PRESERVATION ADVOCATES ANNOUNCES
2011 SPOKANE MATTERS LIST
Spokane Preservation Advocates (SPA), dedicated to preserving Spokane’s historic buildings, neighborhoods, landscapes and character, is pleased to announce its first annual Spokane Matters List highlighting historical buildings, structures, sites, or objects that members of our community think play important roles in the heritage of Spokane and Spokane County. Through this initiative we aim to share the stories of historic places that matter to those in our community, motivate community members to think and talk about the places that matter, and share stories of our area’s heritage and preservation efforts.
