Why do you love living on the Palouse?
“The Palouse, Moscow in particular, is my home. My husband and I have raised our three daughters here, we have become active members in our community, and can’t imagine a better place to live. We love the summers overlooking the beautiful rolling farm fields, Saturdays at the farmer’s markets, long walks on the UI campus, and the four seasons of the Northwest.”
