In the rolling hills of southeastern Spokane County lies the quiet little town of Latah. This tiny community of 150 current residents on Highway 27, was once a lively town with many businesses and nearly 400 residents.
In 1880, bones of a prehistoric mammoth were unearthed at a site just west of Latah. Digging followed producing one of the most complete skeletons of the mammoth, now on exhibit in The Field Museum in Chicago.
