Our Town

Located just 30 miles south of Spokane, you’ll find the centrally located small community of Rosalia. It is just inside Whitman County which is the nation’s largest wheat producing county. The town is in the Palouse hills which provide beautiful greenery in the spring turning to golden ripe grain at harvest. Located on highway 195, you have easy access to Spokane, Pullman, and Cheney where you find universities and a community college. It is an easy 45-minute commute to those cities for work, cultural events, sports, and shopping. Recently updated fiber Wi-Fi service with Ziply also makes it possible to work from home. Rosalia boasts a small airport just four miles west of town where private pilots can rent tie down space or consider building a hangar at budget friendly prices

Housing in Rosalia is predominantly single-family units, however, there are some apartments. Architecture ranges from early 1900’s to new homes currently under construction. The community is family friendly with Preschool through grade 12 education available. The smaller size of the school increases the opportunity for all students to participate in the activities of their choice. Athletic programs are combined with the Tekoa School District to provide additional opportunities. Fore leisure activities, there is a tennis court, basketball court, city park with a play area for small children and a swimming pool.
