The newly revitalized Hillyard neighborhood was once it’s own city named after Great Northern Railway magnate, James J. Hill.

Later incorporated into the Spokane city limits, this neighborhood was recently listed on the National Register of Historic Places. According to Teresa Brum, Spokane's Historic Preservation Officer: "This is the most architecturally intact neighborhood left in Spokane. Most of it looks as it did 90 years ago." The Hillyard Festival is held every August where many residents enjoy celebrating the history of this neighborhood.
