The Buchanan building is both architecturally and historically significant. Designed by local architects F. P. Rooney and Lewis Stritesky, the building was erected in 1911 to house James D. Buchanan’s business ventures. Buchanan’s mortuary, one of the finest establishments in the city, remained in the building until 1924, when it became the Hennessey and Calloway Funeral Home. The ornate entry marquee, elaborate lobby and impressive chapel remain as a testament to the prominence of this early Spokane business.
