Grant Elementary School—
E. 1300 Ninth Avenue

Grant School was built in 1900 and named in honor of U.S. President Ulysses S. Grant. The school grew to include major additions in 1906, 1910, 1951, and added portables between 1910 and 1951. In the 1970s and 1980, 13 elementary schools—including Grant within Spokane School District 81—were replaced by identical “cookie-cutter” no-frills, concrete-constructed grade school buildings with rainbow patterns painted on the building’s facade. Lewis & Clark’s 1968 Graduating Class included students who attended Grant Elementary School.
