Desmet Avenue Warehouse Historic District

Desmet Avenue Warehouse Historic District
No
Yes

The Desmet Avenue Warehouse Historic District is located slightly north of the Spokane River and the commercial downtown of Spokane. The district is composed of six commercial buildings with a long tenure of warehousing and manufacturing associations. Choice of this locale for such buildings was based on the availability of land and proximity of nearby railroad transport. Construction of a majority of these structures occurred between 1904 and 1915, and roughly coincided with the most productive period of building activity in Spokane. While singly configured as one or multi-storied buildings, this ensemble of warehouses represents one of the larger and most cohesive groupings of such structures remaining on the north side of the Spokane River.
