Historic Properties of Spokane
In 1887 Daniel and Mary Ann Trolan and their four children settled on a homestead in the Wild Rose Prairie area of Spokane County, becoming some of the earliest Euro-American residents in the region. The small agricultural complex they started is situated at the western edge of Wild Rose Prairie, in the low hills overlooking the relatively flat farmlands to the east. Although buildings on the property date from the 1880s or 1890s through the 1950s, only the oldest, those known or believed to be associated with the 1880s to 1910s Trolan Homestead, are currently being nominated to the Spokane Register of Historic Places – the 1890s frame farmhouse, pre-1895 log barn, early wood frame garage, and early wood frame outhouse (a two-seater!!!).
