A thesis by Lisa Kalhar Melton identifies the Columbia Theatre as the work of architect Herman Preusse. As the theater was built in 1906, it falls into the period when Preusse was working in partnership with architect Julius Zittel.

Working on his own, Preusse also designed the Auditorium, Spokane’s first large theater, built in 1890. That same year he designed the Woodward Building, which, from 1911 to 1914, housed on its ground floor an early movie house called the Isis Theatre.

On a lighter note, one of the children grew up to be the captain of the Hindenburg.
