West Downtown Historic Transportation Corridor

West Downtown Historic Transportation Corridor
No
Yes

Spokane grew to become a supply center for the region's farmers, ranchers, and miners and as a point of departure for local resources. The city's West Downtown Historic Transportation Corridor is historically significant because of its association with the expansion of railroads, the advent of the automobile, and the rise of Spokane as a regional distribution center. The district's extant buildings that housed railroad-dependent businesses, automobile-related concerns, and worker lodgings are associated with the city's growth.
