The Knickerbocker Apartments was added with three other apartment buildings (Amman, Breslin & San Marco) to the National Register of Historic Places under a thematic nomination for apartment buildings designed by Albert Held, a well-known architect who designed many of Spokane’s best-known structures. Located in close proximity to downtown, Held’s apartment buildings were among the first structures in Spokane designed and built exclusively as apartments. They were elegantly designed with wealthy tenants in mind; mining magnate and civic leader Graham B. Dennis, the owner of the Knickerbocker, spent $200,000 on the building, which he lived in, and expected from Held the “finest apartment house west of New York.”
