Tekoa has a rich heritage and history, having played a key role in the development and support of neighboring communities and farms for over 100 years. Tucked away in an incredibly scenic portion of Whitman County. Tekoa is situated at the base of Tekoa Mountain (elevation 2,490 feet), on the extreme eastern end of the rolling hills known as the Palouse, and to the west of the mighty Benewah Range of Idaho. With a population of over 800, Tekoa retains its small town size and charm. Surrounded by mountains and farms of cattle, wheat, barley, bluegrass, and lentils, it was once the busy hub of the area's railroads. Having an annual precipitation of about 20 inches and an average snowfall of 30 inches, it enjoys a definite four-season climate. Just 39 miles south of the Spokane Valley, 48 miles north of Pullman, and about 55 miles from the Spokane International Airport, it's only a short drive away from major metropolitan areas. We hope you'll come to visit us soon.
