Chattaroy is an unincorporated community in Spokane County, Washington, United States. The town is located on U.S. Route 2 approximately 10 miles north-northeast of Spokane at the confluence of the Little Spokane River and Deer Creek.  Originally, Chattaroy was named Kidd. Kidd was renamed to Chattaroy at the request of the Great Northern Railroad. There was another town named Kidd (in Montana) that was on the Great Northern Line, so the railroad requested a name change to avoid confusion.

Chattaroy es una comunidad no incorporada en el condado de Spokane, Washington, Estados Unidos. La ciudad se encuentra en la Ruta 2 de los Estados Unidos aproximadamente a 10 millas al norte-noreste de Spokane en la confluencia del río Little Spokane y Deer Creek. Originalmente, Chattaroy se llamaba Kidd. Kidd fue renombrado a Chattaroy a petición del Great Northern Railroad. Había otra ciudad llamada Kidd (en Montana) que estaba en la Great Northern Line, por lo que el ferrocarril solicitó un cambio de nombre para evitar confusiones.

Mrs Robert Cowgill and Mrs Alexander B. Owen renamed Kidd to the name of Chattaroy. Chattaroi (no “y”) was the hero in a novel that these two women were reading at the time. They changed the French spelling of “roi” to “roy”.

Founded in the 1880s, Chattaroy is located two miles east of the defunct Spokane Falls & Northern Railway’s Dragoon station. Residents were buried in the Chattaroy cemetery as early as 1888. A post office called Chattaroy has been in operation since 1888. The origin of the name Chattaroy is obscure.



Fundada en la década de 1880, Chattaroy se encuentra a dos millas al este de la desaparecida estación Dragoon de Spokane Falls & Northern Railway. Los residentes fueron enterrados en el cementerio de Chattaroy ya en 1888. Una oficina de correos llamada Chattaroy ha estado en funcionamiento desde 1888. El origen del nombre Chattaroy es oscuro.

In 1900 the community consisted of approximately 250 residents, two general stores, Barker’s Hotel, a drug store operated by a Dr. Smith, a blacksmith shop, a public school with some 60 students, a Congregational church ministered by Reverend F. McConaughy, a Sunday school, and a Modern Woodmen of America hall.

The extraordinary inn where we stayed, “Bluff’s Edge,” is located in the heart of Chattaroy, 9 miles from Deer Park, 11 miles from Spokane’s north entrance and 10 miles from Mead, where I spent my first year in Washington state.
