Historic Properties of Spokane
Built in 1905, the Hale Block is a three-story brick building constructed of eighteen-inch thick unreinforced masonry walls. At various times, it was home to the Hale, the Del Monte, the Lang, the Sonte and the Kincaid Hotels. These hotels provided housing needs for hundreds of working class citizens for 60 years. The Hale Block is one of only a few remaining SROs (Single Residency Occupany Hotels) that were originally erected in Spokane’s East Downtown neighborhood, which once held over 100.
The Hale Block is a contributing property in the East Downtown Historic District, Listed on the National Register of Historic Places 8/29/2003.
