SPR's Home, Former Fire Station No. 3
Spokane Public Radio resides in a rehabilitated historic Spokane treasure, Fire Station No. 3 at North Monroe and Sharp. This community hub has state-of-the-art performing and recording studios.
The Spokane Fire Department first built a wooden building on this spot, replacing it with the brick building in 1917. The back half was built first, in 1912, as the department's first machine shop, and remained in use until 1991.
Full History of the Fire Department's Use
SPR began the renovation process in 2014.
The Grand Opening in January 2016 coincided with SPR's 36th anniversary.
We are honored to have the original Harold Balazs sculpture "Listen" gracing our courtyard. (Video of the sculpture being "played by SSO percussionists here!)
