Chancery Building Endangered - Please Write Letters of Support (Spokane Preservation Advocates)
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -
Contributed By: Spokane Preservation Advocates
Website: https://www.spokanepreservation.org

Do you want to help save the historic 1910 Chancery Building? Raise your voice now! This stately building at 1023 W. Riverside Ave. was originally designed by renowned architect Kirtland Cutter but is threatened with destruction despite its historic significance. The building has been emptied of its tenants.

Betsy Cowles' company purchased the building during the Catholic Church bankruptcy in 2006 and now owns the entire block bordered by Monroe, Riverside, Madison and Sprague. Cowles told SPA leaders last fall that it would be "extremely challenging" to include the 110-year old building in their new master plan for the block.

In a successful application for National Historic District status in 1976, the stretch of Riverside Avenue where the Chancery is located was described as "Spokane's most beautiful street." But national historic status does not protect the building from demolition.

SPA urges its members to send letters to the editor of The Spokesman-Review calling for the building's preservation.

Send letters of no more than 250 words to: editor@spokesman.com, and be sure to include your name and telephone number so newspaper staff can call to get your permission to publish. Any questions? Call 509-459-5026.

Letters can also be mailed to: Letters to the Editor, The Spokesman-Review, 999 W. Riverside Ave., Spokane WA 99201.
