Welcome to Pullman

Ken Carper,

We are surrounded by farmland richly defined by the highs and lows of the Palouse. What is ‘the Palouse’? A region 3-4,000 miles in size, filled with distinct geological formations created by a wave of volcanic activity millions of year ago, followed by floods from Montana, then fine silt from prehistoric wind storms. These forces created the beauty of the gently rolling hills, with soil so fertile for the wheat, peas, barley and lentils that are abundantly produced in our region. Our city motto is ‘high tech, higher education and highest quality of life.’ We are a dynamic city, home to diverse businesses and a school district that rates in the top 100 nationwide, great restaurants, fine arts, music and entertainment. In addition, has ranked Pullman #15 of 20 in their 2016 list of the safest cities in Washington. With plenty to do and to see, the Pullman Chamber of Commerce is close at hand to offer more suggestions. Stay current with our local events at Discover the three legs of the Palouse Scenic Byway, an incredible 208-mile journey through the area at Save the date and return to visit us for the National Lentil Festival on August 18th & 19th, 2017.
