Historic Properties of Spokane
The two-story red brick masonry Hamer Block-Leslie Apartments has a plain parapet and a corbelled brick cornice. From 1901 to 1950, various tenants occupied the building, including a clothing store, meat market, hardware shop, plumbing and heating store, saddlery business, Grossman Brothers Furniture, Brown Shoes & Repair, the Lighthouse Cafe, and Westminster Bakery. Upstairs, the Leslie Apartments were rented as single-occupancy rooms.
The Hamer Block is a contributing property in the Hillyard Historic Business District which was listed on the Spokane Register in 2003 and the National Register in 2002.
