Many Washington residents want a unique small-town feel within the limits of a bustling city. Often, those who decide to live in apartments rent Spokane accomodations in the quaint district of South Perry.
The Historical District
The South Perry neighborhood dates back to the late 1800s. Some of the businesses have been operating in South Perry for a hundred years. Spokane’s earliest elementary school, Grant School, has been teaching South Perry children since it first opened classrooms in 1900. Spokane’s oldest religious congregation, the Liberty Park Methodist Church, has kept its doors open to South Perry since 1912. Other buildings in the business district date back to the early 1920s and feature some fine examples of local granite stonework and decorative shingles. The most striking building, however, is South Perry’s Dutch windmill.
South Perry residents can walk to anything they will ever need. There are convenience stores, laundry services, drugstores, and many other fine establishments within walking distance (including The Shop, an old automotive place turned coffeeshop).
Also nearby is Grant Park, where South Perry residents hold art festivals, farmers’ markets, and outdoor movie fests.
