Alta Vista, Washington
Welcome to Alta Vista ...
Although we found mention of Alta Vista during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Alta Vista was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than a locale or some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it was a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..
While we are confident that Alta Vista was located in Spokane County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Alta Vista to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Alta Vista - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Alta Vista, please Contact Us.
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Alta Vista might be (or was) located is in the Pacific Time Zone (PST/PDT) and observes daylight saving time
