A LITTLE HISTORY

Then and Now

The Garland District began in 1910 with the building of the street railway system, particularly the Post Street Line. By the late 1920's, the district started to take shape. The North Hill Masonic Lodge #210 was established in 1915 and built their beautiful building, now the home of North Hill on Garland Pub & Synergy Properties, at the corner of Garland Avenue and Wall Street in 1921.

The 1921 Masonic Temple building, North Hill on Garland opened in November 2018. Keith Riddle and Paul Cassel had a vison to restore this beautiful building into a neighborhood pub and gathering place. Utilizing the rustic tones of the original brick and wood they gathered materials from around Spokane. Combining wood from the original carousel downtown, acquiring old movie projector tables and refurbishing those outside patio tables with wood from the temple they have created a beautiful and welcoming experience.

As you walk up you will see the the beautiful brick walls, corner stone to the building and the door that the members walked through. When you step inside you are greeted by one of the original signs that hung outside the building that has been refurbished to it's original splendor. The brick walls were hand cleaned and carefully refurbished as well as the original  hardwood floor.

 

Come visit us and let David Hayes the new proprietor share a bit of the history of his pub.
