Ashley Morton (independent scholar)

This lecture will discuss the results of recent archaeological surveys conducted in the Gondola Meadow and the Looff Carrousel areas before the new recreational rink and carrousel buildings were completed. ┬áIt will examine ongoing historical research into what is today Spokane’s iconic public centerpiece, Riverfront Park, as the area transitioned from the initial townsite to a dynamic neighborhood bustling with transplants from the East Coast and Midwest, as well as immigrants from all over the globe. Along with extensive archival research this talk will explore what remained archaeologically throughout development in the last 40 years.
