The Shell Oil Building is a small, one-story brick masonry building with a corbelled brick cornice and a two-bay instate storefront.  The entrance, with original door and hardware, is located in the southern-most bay.  Rosettes appear on a cast iron I-beam located above the storefront’s transom windows.  The Shell Oil Building was home to Ethan O. Palmer Auto Repair in the 1920s and 1930s and to S & E Plumbing and Heating Company from 1945 to the late 1980s.

The Shell Oil Building 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.
