Colville is a mountain town in America's forested northwest, a town with Victorian, as well as traditional modern homes, a clean looking town that serves recreational, timber, and farm interests.

Elevation:  1,635 feet;  population 4,690

Colville (pronounced "Call-ville") is the county seat of Stevens County (population, est. 40,066 in 2000 census) and lies in the Colville River Valley about one-half mile east of the Colville River and 10 miles east of the Kettle River and Columbia River.

Colville is located at the junction of U.S. Highway 395 (north-south) which runs completely from Mexico to Canada through the center of Colville, forming the town's main street, and State Highway 20 (east-west), which runs from the Idaho-Washington border to the Pacific coast and Washington's San Juan Islands.

Colville's slogan is "City of Proud Heritage."  Trade area population is about 26,500, and extends to about a 60-mile radius.  Principal industries in Colville and nearby are timber, agriculture, manufacturing, and tourism.

Special features include the town's unusually wide streets, originally designed to allow a 16-horse team of log-hauling horses to turn a load of logs.  North of town is Colville Mountain, which displays a lighted cross for Christmas and Easter holidays and for other special occasions.  Weather in Colville is moderate, with some precipitation occurring nearly every month.  Tornadoes are unknown but a "wind inversion" in 1990 did slight damage to a few buildings in town.
