Synopsis: Although most people think of the Pacific Northwest as the area defined by Puget Sound and scenic coastal areas, a large part of the Pacific Northwest lies inland and includes Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho.
The story of the Inland Northwest is one of survival and perseverance. With the discovery of silver in the Wallace-Kellogg district of the Idaho Panhandle, mining created the first great pull of population into the region. After the miners, loggers and dryland farmers came, determined to find their livelihood in the remote areas surrounding Spokane. Around these resolute settlements sprang the Inland Empire of mining, railroads and lumber barons.
As the area evolved, the coastal and inland regions became more intertwined, with the inland region providing significant support to the coast, from hydroelectric power to aluminum production for the airplane industry and food for the ever-growing population. With the continued marriage of coastal and inland resources and a firm commitment to growth and conservation, the Inland Northwest is a vibrant community of large cities, small towns, recreation areas, and endless possibilities.
