|Agency History:||In 1810, the North West Fur Company built a trading post known as the Spokane House at the confluence of the Little Spokane and Spokane rivers. The trading post became the first long-term Eurropean settlement in Washington State. Named after the Spokane tribe which means "Sun People" in Salishan, the "City of Spokan Falls" was incorporated in 1881 but was later changed to the City of Spokane Falls in 1883. After a devastating fire in 1889, the city was reincorporated as the City of Spokane in 1891 and is the county seat of Spokane County.|
