The house that Humphrey Bogart allegedly bought for his girlfriend at WSU
325 N.W. Harrison Street, Pullman, WA 99163
Whether this is true, or pure urban legend, the house at 325 N.W. Harrison Street on Military Hill - just a few blocks away from the area where the old historic Pullman Military College once was - is the house that local lore touts as being the house that Humphrey Bogart supposedly bought for a girlfriend of his while she was studying at WSU back in the days of yester-year.  Whether fact or fiction, this corner house is a beautiful little place to look at on a drive-bye or walk-bye of the area, especially if you are already in the Military Hill area checking out the area where the old historic Pullman Military College once stood.  PLEASE NOTE: This whole area of Military Hill where the "(alleged) Humphrey Bogart" house is and where the old historic Pullman Military College once stood are all now part of a large residential neighborhood of private homes on private properties.  If you do choose to drive or walk through the area, please remember to stick to public access areas only (public roads and/or sidewalks), respect privacy laws and private property lines, and show common courtesy towards local residents.

Old Historic Military College Campus ("Area of Town" more correctly)
Intersection of State Street and True Street and continuing West down the block on True Street,  Military Hill, Pullman, WA 99163
It is more correct to say this is the "Area Of Town Where The Old Historic Pullman Military College Campus Once Stood", as there is really nothing left of the original campus except for one historic house which is now privately owned.  This is the former Commandant's House (Major Walker's former faculty house), which is still standing at its original location approximately halfway down the block on True Street.  The area is now a residential area of town near Jefferson Elementary School.  Visiting this area of town makes for a great, quick self-guided local area drive-bye or walk-bye tour for history buffs.  PLEASE NOTE: This area of town is now a residential neighborhood of private homes on private properties.  If you do choose to drive or walk through the area, please remember to stick to public access areas only (public roads and/or sidewalks), respect privacy laws and private property lines, and show common courtesy towards local residents.

Pullman Community Garden at Koppel Farm
Corner of Derby Street and Pro Mall Boulevard, Pullman, WA 99163
This is so much more than just rentable community garden plots on land that use to be a farm.  Of course, the community garden, as the name implies, is there, but if you aren't just out to tend your carrots, it is still worth a trip.  There is a port-a-potty on site and a few picnic tables under shelter.  Though the actual old historic Pullman Dairy Farm, Koppel Farm, itself is nothing more than a few historical signs near the community garden now, this spacious outdoor area - well beyond the borders of the actual garden plots themselves - is situated along a beautiful river walk area where a paved trail maintained by the City of Pullman Parks and Recreation Department runs.  It is a great place for a picnic and a game of frisbee with family and friends on a sunny day.
