Rigg & Van Tyne/ Spokane School District

Constructed in 1921 with additions in 1930-31, Hutton Elementary School is significant for its contribution to public education in Spokane and for its unique Spanish Eclectic design.  Consisting of stucco walls, red tile roof and arcaded entry, Hutton is the only Spokane school that is built in this architectural style.  Designed by master architect, Archibald G. Rigg, and his partner, Roland Van Tyne, the school building rises prominently on an elevated basalt and earthen platform, making it a South Hill Landmark.  Named after mining millionaire and public benefactor, Levi H. Hutton, the school has been serving the children of Spokane for almost 100 years.

Hutton Elementary is a contributing property in the Rockwood Historic District which was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997.
