Spokane (pronounced ( listen) spoh-KAN) is a city located in the northwestern United States in the state of Washington.

This trading post was the first long-term European settlement in Washington and the center of the fur trade between the Rockies and the Cascades for 16 years. In the late 19th century, gold and silver were discovered in the Inland Northwest. The Spokane area is considered to be one of the most productive mining districts in North America.
