Historic Properties of Spokane
Erected in 1910, the Rose-Kly-Cecil Apartments is a good example of the Colonial Revival style with Italianate influence. Located in the Union Park Addition in the East Central neighborhood of Spokane, WA, and surrounded by late nineteenth and early twentieth-century single-family homes, the Rose-Kly-Cecil Apartments is one of the community’s only historic multi-family apartment buildings. The property faces north and is highly visible from its location just south of Interstate 90, which parallels Third Avenue in front of the property. A small single-story, single-family frame house built in 1900 is located south behind the apartment block (on the same parcel). The Rose-Kly-Cecil Apartment building retains good exterior architectural integrity in design, materials, workmanship, and association as a multi-family residential apartment. The Rose-Kly-Cecil was moved from 3rd Avenue to 1813 E 4th Avenue in 2020 to make way for I90 freeway expansion.
