You’re invited to the first (hopefully) annual Newman Lake History Night on Wednesday, March 14 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Newman Lake Tri Community Grange, 25025 Heather Lane, just north of the intersection of Trent and Starr roads.

The History Night will feature a presentation of the early days of Newman Lake by Spokane Valley Heritage Museum Director Jayne Singleton. Also, people with Newman Lake photos and artifacts will be sharing those with participants, as there has been much interest in the community about old Newman Lake photos.

If you have any photos or artifacts you would like to share with the community that night please contact the Newman Lake Property Owners Association at so we make sure there is a place for you to share your treasures. There will also be a scanner available that night for copying and sharing photos.
