Spokane has many beautiful, historic homes and buildings. One of these buildings, The Hutton Building, is on the National Register of Historic Places since 1983.
Named for Levi and May Hutton, the building is one of many original downtown buildings that are undergoing renovation in an effort to promote commercial and tourist growth in the City of Spokane.
The Hutton family opened the building’s first four floors in 1907 and added three more in 1910. They became millionaires when the Hercules Mine struck silver in 1901. The family lived in a lavish fourth floor apartment.
Levi Hutton, raised as an orphan, later constructed Hutton Settlement that still operates in the Spokane Valley. The home provides long-term care for children.
On Friday, the Spokane Teacher’s Credit Union (STCU) announced plans to expand into the Hutton Building, opening a new branch location and commercial lending offices. STCU will be offering office space for purchase on some floors.
"We intend to continue growing our commercial lending program and it's logical for us to have a presence where those activities occur," said Tom Johnson, STCU president/CEO.
STCU states that it plans to open the Hutton Building branch on the main floor of the building located at 9 S Washington St., at the corner of Sprague and Washington.
STCU President Johnson added, “The project gives STCU an opportunity to reclaim an architectural treasure.”
