Discover the city of Millwood, nestled along Argonne Road and the Spokane River and known for its paper mill, historic homes, and the first Rocket Bakery location.

Millwood is also home to enthusiastic supporters of their local Argonne Library. The Friends of the Argonne Library are holding an open house with wine and live classical music.

Small, local businesses in Millwood are gearing up for Small Business Saturday, which occurs just after Thanksgiving, by sharing their services, goods, and expertise. You can taste locally brewed beer, learn basic bike repair, try out a yoga class, and assemble and stitch a small book.
