” Spokane History, a New Way to Share Local History.”  For decades, local history was told mostly through public plaques, small museums, and the rare public event. Starting in 2012, students at Eastern Washington University pioneered a new way of sharing local stories, through a website and smartphone app called Spokane Historical. EWU Professor of history Larry Cebula and a few of his students will demonstrate SpokaneHistorical.org, sharing some of the best stories and the excitement of local history.
