Wed., Dec. 14, 2011, 7:55 a.m.

The Spokane Preservation Advocates this week released a list of top historic structures in the Spokane area in an effort to call attention to their significance.

It is the first time that the organization has created such a list.

“Through this initiative we aim to share the stories of historic places that matter to those in our community, motivate community members to think and talk about the places that matter, and share stories of our area’s heritage and preservation efforts,” the organization said in a news release accompanying the list made public on Tuesday.

The Spokane Matters list includes the Campbell House, Cheney Depot, Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church, Opportunity Township Hall, Dodd House, Jensen-Byrd Building, Spokane’s historic street tree canopy, Westminster Apartments, Riverside Avenue Historic District, Ninth Avenue Historic District, Lewis and Clark High School and the Old Parker Cabin.
