Four Spokane buildings make USA Today's 'must see' list

KREM 2's Amanda Roley shares which ones made the list.

SPOKANE, Wash. -- USA Today Travel listed the top 25 "must-see" buildings in Washington state.
Most of the 25 included buildings in Seattle and Central Washington but four are in Spokane. 

USA Today asked the American Institute of Architects to create a list of 25 structures that visitors in each state should see. 

The Spokane County Courthouse made the list because of it's 16th-century French Renaissance design.

Riverfront Park was selected for serving as the site for the Expo in 1974. USA Today noted the historic clock tower and the U.S. Pavilion as one of the many attractions to Spokane.

Over in Browne's Addition, the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture is the third Spokane building to make the list. USA Today said the museum's natural and regional history including the Campbell House is what made it stand out.

Finally, in Downtown Spokane, it is no surprise that the Davenport Historic Hotel stood out as well. It was commissioned in 1913 by a group of Spokane businessmen. USA Today notes the Davenport Hotel not only is listed on the National Register of Historic Places but that it was also the first hotel in the United States with air conditioning and a central vacuum system.

Other structures listed for Washington state included the Space Needle and the Museum of Pop Culture in Seattle, along with the Tacoma Narrows Bridge.
