Plaza is an unincorporated community in Spokane County, Washington, United States. Plaza is situated in a valley formed by Spangle Creek, located approximately 7 miles (11 km) north of Rosalia. U.S. Route 195, a major north–south highway in the Palouse region, ran through the settlement until it was relocated to a bypass in 1974.
Plaza was founded by Robert Patterson, a former Pony Express rider who had operated throughout Washington Territory. He built a general store along the rail line that ran between Spokane and Colfax, and a small community of farmers and tradesmen cropped up around it. Agriculture was the primary industry, but goods and services were also made available to railway passengers.
