Historic Properties of Spokane
Hill Brothers Building
The Hill Brothers Building is one of the oldest brick commercial buildings in downtown Spokane, one of the first buildings to be built after the Great Fire of 1889. Located in the heart of the city’s downtown business district, the Hill Brothers Building represents the transition from the rough-and-tumble early days of downtown Spokane to the city’s more mature, more refined, post-fire downtown retail core. Formerly a frame building that housed a saloon and gaming hall, the Hill Brothers Building was rebuilt as a substantial brick structure and served as a retail establishment for over 100 years.
