Old Spokane City Hall was built in 1912-13 as a temporary headquarters of city government, which was displaced by railroad construction. The city remained there until 1982 when it moved into the renovated Montgomery Ward Building a block to the west. Having been well maintained over the years, it is largely unchanged. It was done in the Commercial Style and Chicago School of architecture by local architect Julius Zittel. Today, it offers a mix of office and commercial uses with the Olive Garden restaurant on the ground floor. The four western door openings made up the fire engine bay doors. The restaurant dining area is located inside those doors that line Spokane Falls Boulevard.
