Built in 1910, the Foresters of America Hall is typical of Lodge Hall/Commercial Vernacular architecture, with a large open meeting room (lodge hall) on the second floor and commercial space on the ground floor. Rising from a basalt rubble basement, the two-story building is on the southeast corner of Pacific Avenue and Browne Street in the southeast quadrant of Spokane's central business district. Clad in red brick with terra cotta trim, the building exhibits decorative design features, specifically at the ground floor entrances and the second floor windows characteristic of a fraternal lodge hall. Although storefront window bays on the ground floor west elevation and corner entry have been altered, the building retains good integrity of design, setting, materials, workmanship, feeling, and association.
