Our CommunityNine Mile Falls is considered a “bedroom community,” with lake access. Many residential lots are one acre or more and allow horses, orchards, etc. Families are attracted to Nine Mile Falls for its rural character, the recreational opportunities of 26 mile long Lake Spokane (Long Lake), access to five major ski areas, and the proximity of Spokane, with is employment opportunities and cultural amenities.
There are no incorporated towns within the District. Small businesses, farms, and forests add to the diversity of family choices. The school district is the largest employer, and also meets many of the community’s recreational needs through extra curricular programs.
