Historic Properties of Spokane
The Wetzel Warehouse was constructed in 1906 and exists as an excellent example of commercial vernacular industrial warehouse architecture built in Spokane during the early twentieth century. Designed as a functional industrial warehouse with little exterior embellishment, the Wetzel Warehouse is part of a unique contiguous facade of mostly two-story commercial vernacular industrial buildings that were built in the early 1900s. The warehouse buildings front West Pacific Avenue between McClellan and Browne Streets and demonstrate early building trends and patterns that led to the industrial development of east downtown Spokane and its importance as the town’s storage and distribution center.
The Wetzel Warehouse is a contributing property in the East Downtown Historic District, listed on the National Register of Historic Places 8/29/2003.
