Chancery’s historical value

One of the best things about living in Spokane is the care and respect shown to its older buildings. Rather than just tearing them down and replacing them with soulless structures, Spokane has largely renovated and re-purposed its historic buildings.

The Chancery Building is an example of a beautiful building, designed by Spokane’s most famous architect and located on the most architecturally interesting street in the city. To tear down this building and replace it with new construction would destroy the symmetry of the block and of the neighborhood.

Surely the Cowles family which is responsible for so much of Spokane’s growth and culture can find a way to save this building for future generations.
