It is alleged that portions of the 100-year-old Dania Furniture building in downtown Spokane are haunted, especially on the fourth floor and in the basement where a speakeasy called the Cactus Room used to be. Photos by Sarah Wurtz.

The Dania building was constructed in 1904, and was originally built between two existing structures. The west-facing building no longer exists today — it's now a parking lot — but remnants of it can be seen throughout building, especially on the allegedly haunted fourth floor. - SARAH WURTZ

The building once located to the west originally housed a grocery store, and a sign for the business can still be seen on the inside wall of Dania's fourth floor, currently undergoing renovations. - SARAH WURTZ

Old tin panels cover the ceiling of the fourth floor. The building was originally constructed as a department store. Over the past 100 years it's also been a music store and another furniture store, aside from its current occupant, Dania. The tin ceilings are being restored during the currently ongoing renovations. - SARAH WURTZ

Ongoing renovations call for the tin ceilings to be restored, and the wooden floors on the fourth floor to be refinished. The brick walls with the old grocery store lettering will also remain intact. - SARAH WURTZ

Construction workers have told Dania's employees that strange things have been happening on the fourth floor, such as lights being turned off when no one else reportedly has been around. - SARAH WURTZ
