Located 48 miles north of Pullman on Highway 27. This small farming community continues to grow as many Spokane commuters call Tekoa home. Tekoa has a community pool and the Iron Horse Arena which holds horse shows throughout the summer and a rodeo during their Slippery Gulch Days. Stop by for a nine-hole round of golf at the Tekoa Golf Course.
Tekoa has a rich heritage and history, having played a key role in the development and support of neighboring communities and farms for over 100 years. Tucked away in an incredibly scenic portion of Whitman county, Tekoa is situated at the base of Tekoa Mountain (elevation 2,490 feet), on the extreme eastern end of the rolling hills known as the Palouse, and to the west of the mighty Benewah Range of Idaho. With a population of over 800, Tekoa retains it's small town size and charm. Surrounded by mountains and farms of cattle, wheat, barley, bluegrass and lentils, it was once the busy hub of the area's railroads. Having an annual precipitation of about 20 inches and an average snowfall of 30 inches, it enjoys a definite four season climate. Just 39 miles south of the Spokane Valley and about 55 miles from the Spokane International Airport, it's only a short drive away from major metropolitan areas.
