With the construction of Spokane Parental School, which housed, educated, disciplined, and mentored delinquent boys, in 1908, Spokane became one of only five cities in the United States, together with New York, Boston, Chicago, and Seattle, with educational correctional facilities of this sort. Renowned Spokane master architect Albert Held donated his services, drawing plans for the school and outbuildings in the Dutch Colonial Revival style.
