neighborhood overview

Hillyard is a neighborhood in Spokane, Washington which existed as a separate town between 1892 and 1924. The town came about due to the Great Northern Railway and was named for James J. Hill, then-head of the railroad. Between 1904 and 1912, many of the town's houses were built, to house railroad workers working in the local yard. Hillyard was the home of the Great Northern's famed shops where locomotives were manufactured, repaired, and refurbished. At the time, the Hillyard shop was the largest in the nation. Hillyard has an inherent identity and pride that is built on tradition, history, and place. At its core, Hillyard is a community of people living and sharing life together. Kids play in the streets, residents walk their dogs and everyone works to make Hillyard a better place. The neighborhood is family oriented, established, and in transition. Neighbors enjoy access to parks and the pedestrian friendly nature of the physical landscape. Residents will admit the neighborhood is not perfect, but people are proud of the neighborhood’s “rough edges” that keep it unique and real. It’s a place that has real people with real stories and more community than any other place in the region.
