Dutton House
Dutton House Spokane Register Nomination, Spokane, WA

Determinations of Eligibility & Nominations to Local, State & National Registers

Listing on a local, State or National Register can instill pride, stabilize neighborhoods, and increase local land values. Once a resource is listed on a register, standards and guidelines are often established to ensure that the resource continues to be an asset. These are typically modeled after the Secretary of Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation.
