Spokane’s age of elegance

The Miller and Whitten buildings, both listed on the Spokane historic register, date from the re-building following the Great Fire of 1889 and are great examples of Spokane’s age of elegance in architecture.

The Miller Block, on the left, is Richardsonian Romanesque featuring detailed scrollwork and arched windows on the third floor. The adjacent 1890 Whitten Block houses the Post Street Ale House on the ground floor and was once the site of Louis Davenport’s restaurant prior to hotel construction. The two buildings were renovated in the early 1990s to house the luxury Lusso Hotel.
