The Levy block, built in 1892 for Samuel Levy, is historically significant for its association with the rebuilding effort that occurred in Spokane in the wake of the Great Fire of 1889.  It is also an early representative example of a Single Room Occupancy Hotel, or SRO, a distinctive type of working class housing built in response to the construction and population booms that occurred in Spokane between 1890 and 1910.
