About the Port
The Port of Whitman County was formed by vote in 1958. The port's first major mission was to diversify the primarily agricultural economy of the county. The port has been growing ever since.
Law empowers Washington's ports with broad economic development authority to bring business and jobs to their communities. Almost every Washington port pursues an aggressive program of industrial and economic development to promote employment and otherwise enhance the economy of the district and state.
Ports may:
  • Develop lands for industrial and commercial needs
  • Provide general economic development programs
  • Buy lease and sell property
  • Provide air and water pollution control works
  • Operate trade centers and export trading companies
  • Establish and operate foreign trade zones
  • Build telecommunications infrastructure and provide wholesale telecommunications services

News & Events
Snake River Family Festival Update
The Snake River Family Festival took place on May 20th, 2017, at Boyer Park and Marina. Though a bit rainy at first, the skies cleared and over 400 people from across the region joined in the fun, food, educational displays and music.
Together, local port districts, wheat growers from Washington, Oregon and Idaho and additional river partners put on the Snake River Family Festival to highlight and celebrate the vibrant Snake and Columbia River system as an essential contributor to our region’s economy and quality of life.

Exhibitors highlighted the economic value of the river, clean energy production, salmon recovery and on-water recreational opportunities. Fin, the migrating salmon, on loan from the Washington State Salmon Coalition was a huge hit with the kids as was the 'wheat box' attraction and bouncy houses. The food was good, the lemonade amazing and the live music by Nicole Lewis and her band set just the right tone.

So, what’s next? Stay tuned as plans are made for 2018. Hope to see you on the river!
