A rustic stone pyramid, nine feet high, commemorates the site of the Battle of Spokane Plains, fought on September 5, 1858. Rumors that the Mullan Road would bring a flood of whites into the region had caused an uprising of allied Coeur d’Alene, Palouse, and Spokane Indians. Colonel George Wright, with 700 men, decisively defeated the Indians at this point after a running battle from Four Lakes. The monument is located in Spokane Plains Battlefield State Park and was erected in 1935.
