neighborhood overview

Built mostly in the early 20th century, Emerson-Garfield is one of Spokane’s original neighborhoods. The neighborhood has a strong mix of residential and commercial land uses. With such diversity it’s impossible to characterize the community according to one predominant theme. More than 9,000 people live in this historic but evolving neighborhood: longtime residents, young professionals, students, growing families and local business owners. Private companies, independent retailers, service businesses, seasonal markets, restaurants and almost every type of basic consumer need are met along the busy arterial streets of Monroe, Northwest Boulevard, Indiana and Division. Now unified in the former Havermale/Community School building, Spokane Public Montessori rounds out the strong presence of public schools and the private Trinity Catholic School. Emerson and Corbin Parks remain popular outdoor attractions for all ages. Residents appreciate their down-to-earth neighbors, tree-lined local streets, easy access to nearby amenities and downtown Spokane, and the historical character of the many older homes and commercial buildings.
