So come along and learn about...
ISAAC STEVENS: Did you know that we have a monument to the first governor of Washington right here in Latah County? The survey work done by Stevens in the 1850s is integral to John Mullan's story, and we will begin our journey at this little known marker.
PLANTE'S FERRY PARK: This Spokane park is located on the spot where French-Canadian trapper Antoine Plante settled and operated the first ferry in the area. Mullan passed through this exact location because Plante's ferry was the only way to cross the Spokane River in the early 1850s.
